We cannot resign ourselves to doing nothing because the problem is endless and we think to ouselves "what difference can saving one life make?"  Because for that one life, the difference is everything!

If everyone does one good thing , everything will change. If everyone does nothing, nothing will change. 
All it takes is one action, from one person, and the cycle begins.
