Could someone, please, correct my mistakes in this short text bellow?
There are much sickness in society, everywhere. It happens not only nowadays, but happened in the past too. Wars, slavery, inequality between men and women, genocides...the list is long. It seems that mankind never learn with its own mistakes. Your starting point is beyond dispute. Society is definitely sick.So, what? Is there something we can do?
It is not so easy, but I think the answer can be yes.
First, we can not change the world, but we can start changing ourselves. We can change the sphere around us. If we change the way we see life, they we act ourselves we can live better and have some progress. Just being pessimist does not help.
I can not refrain myself of quoting Gandhi when he said "Be the change that you want to see in the world."
I am always struggling to write well in English as my second language. Thanks for your help.
