In my opinion, contributing to Social Entrepreneurship is a Virtue.
And why do I say that? Simply because Social Entrepreneurship raises the awareness of the social issues the world is dealing with now. It reveals the ugly side of the world and forces people to come to terms with it, to acknowledge that the world is not as beautiful as we think it is and that there ARE people out there, desperate for our help.
And alike all other Virtues, it should be taught to the Everyone! Everyone should possess this great moral excellence of contributing to Social Entrepreneurship and help in making the world a better place. We place Patience, Kindness, Perseverance and many other moral values in the “Virtue group”. Now let’s look at it this way, involving in Social Entrepreneurship allows you to demonstrate Love and Kindness towards the needy people. It tests your patience and perseverance as you meet the many obstacles and problems on the way to contributing for Social Entrepreneurship too. So doesn’t Social Entrepreneurship earn its place in the “Virtue group”? (:
When the world gets educated about Social Entrepreneurship, more people will come forward to extend a helping hand towards the needy, and this will increase the chances of helping the needy out of the darkness of their lives. Imagine you’re in a big black deep pit and suddenly, the opening of the pit is revealed and a hand extends into the pit from the stunning white light outside, helping you out of the pit. How would you feel?
“Awesome” is barely enough to describe the fantastic and relieved feeling. In this case, you are the needy people, the extended hand is people who participate in Social Entrepreneurship and the big black deep pit is the world of the needy people.
You can be the one to extend that hand. You can be the one who rescues the needy people out of their pits. You can be the one who introduce light into their lives again. You, along with many other people.
If one hand can already make such a big impact, can you imagine how much the world will be affected if Social Entrepreneurship is spread to the whole world of people, recruiting more hands to help more needy people out of their pits? Can you imagine what an army of volunteers can do to the social issues in the world? They can be as close as to SOLVING it! 😀
The best way to instill moral values into people is when they are young. So I think, we should start educating the children and students of different countries about Social Entrepreneurship and the effects it has on the world. When children and students are educated about Social Entrepreneurship and learn how they can contribute to this fantastic cause, they will be able to bring what they learnt with them along their adulthood, and with more choices and abilities as an adult, they will definitely be able to change the world and maybe even solve the social issues we’re facing. (: C’mon, I know you’re agreeing with me. ^^
Let me end this (REALLY INSIGHTFUL) post with one of my favourite songs. 😀
Heal The World, Make It A Better Place. For You And For Me, and The Entire Human Race. There Are People Dying, if You Care Enough for The Living. Make A Better Place, For You And For Me. (:
Always Yours, Snowypore! ♥
