Acknowledging our privileged positions is the first step in realising the power we hold. I believe that the most powerful moments in life are those when we exercise our power to make a positive mark on someone’s life. In times of crisis, such as a global virus outbreak, social responsibility is our beacon of hope. If this crisis teaches us anything, it is that we rely on the support of the vulnerable, of the socially neglected, of the economically deprived, of the ones we often make unheard and invisible. Our help to them is by no means a one-way transaction. In fact, we may give them our time and perhaps other resources, yet in exchange we gain something far more valuable. Those who we often neglect are the everyday heroes from whom we can learn lessons about being positive, humble, grateful and, above all, mindful about the responsibilities that come with our privilege.
