why bother?

Today is the beginning of Fair Trade Fortnight
and today when I go and speak to senior students at the High School I will ask
"Why Bother?"
There are lots of answers to that:
Because it's right
Because we can
Because one lone voice may not be heard - but when one becomes two; and then three, and four - pretty soon you have a cacophany
and together we can make a difference
it may not seem so to us
but to many others all around our small voice is a rousing cheer

"Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work;
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken"
Eccl: 4:9,12
