Article in brief: The author expresses the strength in being a united group rather than a single individual with a dream and how finding people with the same goals as yours could make your future brighter.
It is easier to defeat a soldier than to defeat an army and easier to step over a rock than to step over a mountain of rocks. There is strength in a unit and strength in a group joined together by a common goal. There’s unity in a family, among friends, in a classroom, between colleagues or simply among people who share the same dream.
Yes, there will be many that wont necessarily support or agree with your dreams but on the other hand, there are many more that strive for what you want. We see people all over the world aiming to positively change it, to force what they believe in and make it a reality to live in, so imagine the change a group could make. If a single person could sweep a crowd to where they wish to, what could a unit do?
I have always believed in common goals, in that moment when you find people who share your dreams, people who want to achieve the same goals you are determined to achieve. In that moment, the future in my eyes appears to be so much brighter because I believe in the power of a unit. A single person could achieve so much but a group of people could achieve so much more.
Seeing people united together to fight for education, or united together to give definitely warms my heart. All those campaigns that were launched during this Ramadan and all the new organizations that appeared in the past few years are proof enough that with cooperation and unity comes achievements and success.
You could wish to be the next Neil Armstrong or the first successful version of yourself; you could have the weirdest dreams that make you happy just thinking about them. Imagine finding people with the same strange wishes, someone to help you through it all, people to share their knowledge and you’d share yours. That’s what being united means; you’d exchange experience and gain so much more.
So join hands, find your unit, find those people that make your dreams a little less wild and create something amazing together. Create a campaign that could change lives, become a leader to those who need guidance, start a new project where different handprints create an art piece and never doubt the power of a unit.
