    "While walking along a beach,

    an elderly gentleman saw someone in the distance leaning down, picking something up and throwing it into the ocean. As he got closer, he noticed that the figure was that of a young man, picking up starfish one by one and tossing each one gently back into the water. He came...

    my girl scout troop is making reusable,

    rewashable pads for these girls in two different schools in Kenya because once they get to that time in life they don't have what they need and end up dropping out and being married early. this makes me feel like I'm not pointless in this world.

    I really wanted to do something to change the

    world for the better. I found this organization called Children International. At first, I thought it was a scam (it's sad that scams have become such a justified concern), but on further investigation, I was relieved to find out it's legit. I have been sponsoring three...

    I went to a restaurant today with my family.

    In said restaurant, a homeless person approached me and my dad and asked if we had a dollar or two. Unfortunately, I didn't have my purse with me and so I couldn't give him anything. But what makes me so mad is that I got scared of him. I looked away and I said that I was sorry...

    Some people say, whatever life gives you is

    meant for you, is something you need, is something you are supposed to get, but that isn't quite true, for me, almost everything life gives me is nothing but a lesson, it's nothing but a phase and I always end up losing it but at the same time, gaining something that will stay...

    Abraham Lincoln once said,

    "In the end, it's not the years in life that count. It's the life in the years." So I thought to myself, "What would make my life more meaningful?" and that was to make a difference in the world. To influence and make an impact in our society.

    And I do. Me being alive makes me a difference.

    My love for others makes a difference. You don't have to save the rain forest to make a difference. Not that it isn't amazing. You being you. Opening your heart and being present for every individual will make a difference, for everyone.

    Sometimes I just gaze into the mirror,

    staring back at my reflection. As I look into my eyes all I can see is hurt and pain, misery caused by myself and to myself, as if the life of my soul had been washed away. My whole life has been gazing through mirrors, looking out of windows, noticing the beauty of the world...

    The only way most of us can make a difference

    is to start with ourselves. Change comes from within, and people can't change others. We've all heard the quote: "Be the change you want to see in the world."

    I want to make a difference.

    Even if it's for just one person, because that person can also make a difference. Even if it's something small like making someone smile, or making them feel important and like they matter. I want to make a difference.
