    I think it's just disgusting what the western

    world is doing to the rest of the world, and middle east especially. This absurd is getting so ridiculous, first the USA created Al Qaeda and the Talibans in order to use them against the Soviet Union, later they armed Saddam so that he can fight the Iran, and then when they...

    idk why but i feel like i'm wasting my time here

    I believe that it is God Himself

    Staying in the world means

    that I can try to overcome my demons and live in love and by faith and know and be known and hear the angels sing on high. But it's the false prophet who steals my world and does the most damage, as the nation's drink in her adulteries as she blames it all on me, and what hurts...

    I'm 14. Now, there aren't many things

    that a 14 year old can actually do to change things. I have had this ambition to make a difference and to help people for a while and that's why I decided that I want to be a donor of various things (e.g. Blood and marrow). When I realised that I can't do this because, at the...

    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 don't want to change the whole world.

    I simply want to make a difference in people's lives. I am a middle school teacher. I got a text from an old student this week telling me that she wants to spend the rest of her life helping teenagers. The minute she realized this she thought of me. She realized that I...

    Who says Americans don´t like socialism?

    They just do it a little bit differently…The Fed has just used their politics to redistribute the prosperity from the poor to the rich. According to the “Wirtschaftswoche” the American households have a common net assets they had in 2007, before the big...

    If I were to fight for a better world I would

    first have to accept God's grace. Christ's sacrifice on the cross is the reason why I'm forgiven, I don't have to feel guilty for a week, it's forgiven as soon as I turn and repent and ask for forgiveness. I don't have to continue for a week and feel guilt or shame anymore. I...

    Our society has a lot of names

    and definitions. Some like it, others hate it with a passion and would rather be dissociated from it, but only few would dare to disagree with the fact that if not for it, we would never have achieved the things we have. It doesn’t, however, mean that it is perfect and...

    I think the root problem of the world is lack

    Education really is the key to obtaining a

    successful life full of opportunity. It angers me that in this world girls are still being denied the right to an education and are seen as second class citizens. Gender inequality is a huge issue in 3rd world countries.

    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.
