“Only one person died.”
Only one? What a relief!
But wait…. One person with an entire life. All their hopes, all their dreams. Who cares? How does it affect you? How will it affect me? How many people would be affected by that one death?
What becomes of them?
We say one life is no big deal. We think nothing of it. But what if it was your father? Your mother? What if it was your brother? Your sister? Would it still not matter? Could you still say “Only one person died.”? And…
Would that life be so insignificant? Would it still not be a big deal?
Who will carry on what you started? You could have changed the world. You could have made a difference. You could have saved lives.
You could have saved a life.
Only one person died.
