    I am a true believer in the butterfly effect.

    One small act. One inspired idea. The world can be better, but we have to want it to be. If I'm the first to put up my hand (and I'm pretty sure I'm not) then let me say it... if you want to hurt him/her, decide not to. If you look around you, choose to see beauty. If he/she...

    What more could we want from this world?

    We go from birth, through childhood and education, through the prime years of youth, through early and middle adulthood, through old age, to death. We live, we die, we make our wretched mistakes, but what is the meaning behind it all? I want more. I want to accomplish the rage...

    The most important thing about change is

    realizing that change is a constant, however.. change can either be good or bad. A forced change leads to destruction at times, so change must be a gradual process.. After all patience is a virtue

    Why do youth struggle to be themselves?

    There is a common expression that says "JUST be yourself". The JUST implies that being yourself is easy. So why do we find ourselves subjected to social norms and systems and in doing so forget the very things that make us who we are. God made us all for specific purposes. The...

    Well at first this seems like a pretty lofty
