    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...

    I am passionate about kindness

    and have found that one of the best ways of making a difference is by performing random acts of kindness. As Aesop said, no act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. To help fuel my passion I follow a group called Random Acts whose mandate is to conquer the world...

    Forgive All and Say You Are Sorry...

    Like you, I want to make a difference in this world.  But I found that difference to be very different than saving the planet, recycling, or even keeping my noxious gas levels down. (though all of these issues are very important) I found that the very best way to...

    Tainted.

    If you've ever stopped to look at the beauty that is life, and admired the world, you'd understand what I mean. What I'm asking for is pretty hard to achieve, I know, but then if everyone got together, I don't see any reason why we can't make this world a better place? Stand Up...

    It Seems The Only Ones Who Make A Difference Are:

    Youth Pastor.

    I think youth go through so much. And I think it's important for them to have someone they can look up to. A mentor they can come to about anything. I want to be able to see them happy and trying to succeed. No matter who they are or where their from.

    One day I'm going to be able to write music

    that touches people as much as my voice (hopefully) does. Since I'm a very shy person before you get to know me, I hope to make songs that others can relate too, because to me songs that I can relate to and music that I love are the trademarks of a good artist.
