When I was young and free and my imagination had no limits,I dreamed of changing theworld.
As I grew older and wiser, I discovered the world would not change, so I shortened my sights somewhat and decided to change only my country.
But it, too, seemed immovable.
As I grewinto my twilight years, in one last desperate attempt, I settled for changing only my family, those closest to me,
but alas, they would have none of it.
And now, as Ilie on my death bed, I suddenly realize:
If I had only changed myself first, then by example I would have changed my family.
From their in spiration and encouragement, I would then have been able to better my country,and who knows, I may have even changed the world.
