Feeling Powerless?

Rav Chaim of Volozhin states in Nefesh Hachaim that every action we take, thought we think,  and each word we utter creates change in the world that reverberates infinitely.  We are each a link in the chain of Klal Yisrael; when we enhance our link, it lifts those attached to ours.

Are we powerless right now?

Can we do nothing but stand by and watch?

As we see above, WE are powerful, individually, and even more so, as a people. 

If we make one small change in our actions, thoughts, or speech, it will make an impact, greater than any of us can imagine.  We will literally be saving lives.  

Don't know what to do? 

The next time a negative thought arises in your head about another person or even about yourself, turn from it; pause before you speak and check if those words are bringing Hashem into this world; smile at someone and make them feel good.  Infinite possibilities to show how WE are powerful.
