When to Improve the World
During the dark days of World War II, Anne Frank and her family, along with four other people, spent twenty-five months in a hidden annex of rooms above Anne's father's office in Amsterdam. Eventually, the Franks and their friends were discovered by German authorities and deported to Nazi concentration camps. Nine months later Anne died of typhus in the notorious Bergen-Belsen camp, at the age of fifteen. Her diary - saved during the war by one of her family's helpers and published in 1947 - quickly became a classic.
Anne Frank wrote, "How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world." Her words were true then, and they're true now: the best moment to begin improving your world is the present moment.
“How do I love God? By doing beautifully the work I have been given to do, by doing simply that which God entrusted to me, in whatever form it may take.” - Mother Teresa
