When God created us He placed control over the whole world into our hands He gave us the power to rule over all of nature including animals birds and every other living creature But the most valuable gift He provided us with was the ability to feel compassion and take responsible actions Thanks to this advantage over all other species we can make a difference in this decaying world Actually the difference begins with the birth of every precious human Just because he is an individual he changes the world With each birth life throughout the universe becomes more vital and with each death it becomes weaker Indeed each birth can be compared to adding another piece of stone to this enormous mountain called the universe What a small stone means to the mountain a person means to the whole of humankind Even though they both are hardly noticeable their merit is significant So what can the significance of a stone be A seemingly worthless stone may save the life of mountaineer whose foot suddenly slides In panic he grabs the stone and thus escapes a gruesome death It is hard to believe that one single stone can save him from the split second of fatality approaching The fact is that the mountaineer would be dead now if that stone were not there Therefore each stone is valuable for the whole world Comparing such a stone to any human being the life of one single person is extremely important for the survival of humankind His life as well as his deeds affects the universe through his interelatedness with all of humanity As a result the destiny of the earth depends on our existence This idea always pervades my mind whenever I read Meditation XVII by John Donne a writer whose soul often resonates with mine He proclaims No man is an island entire of itself every man is a piece of the continent a part
