Nobody Can Do Everything, But Everyone Can Do Something

It's All About The Connection

Imagine a chain. A sequence of oblong circles, infinitely linked to those on either side of it: strong, reliable, and purposeful. One link without the other serves no greater purpose. It is just a lone link. Through its connections, relationships and bonds a link becomes meaningful.

The USF Honors Course “One Pencil Can Help Bring Peace” is an agent enabling the students of class IDH 4000 to come together and explore the surrounding community for help in a greater cause. We have become the welders of our chain, the chain for Afghan children. It has now been put in our hands to be resourceful within our community. We wish to seek out other interested collective members of the community and integrate this beautiful chain of charity for Afghan school children. So, with masks on, torch in hand, and sparks of fiery passion flying while welding this cohesion of linked service, community and unity the students of this USF course have begun a mission.

The Tampa Bay Area is a fortunate city that has learned the concept of ‘linking’ to create businesses galore. Industries, companies, offices, bureaus, agencies, organizations…..all understand that success does not come from one person. So, we begin our search in the corporate and educated world, for those that catch the sparks of passion being welded, close by, out of the corner of their eyes. We ask that they lend their services to children who have no concept of corporate cubicles, paychecks or staff meetings but will still recognize the heartfelt and warm gesture of giving.

Nobody can do everything, but everyone can do something. Ask yourself what is the purpose of your link? It is time to weld the links of your life. Time to help the Afghan children rid themselves of the locks and shackles of the Taliban and equip them with their own metaphorical masks and torches of education, so that their sparks can begin to flicker too.
