    Honey Badgers Don't Care

    As the Stanley Milgram’s experiment indicates,

    65% of people tend to mindlessly obey an authority. If people know how others will react and their decisions are interdependent, even more people are inclined to obey. Maybe some of you will say:”But that’s exactly what we are supposed to do, to listen to the authorities in...

    I look back at my 42 years

    and know society looks at me as a failure in many ways: my 2 marriages, my kids, since one is disabled and one is biracial, my lack of monetary success and financial status. In my head I beat myself up often for decisions I've made and giving myself these challenging lessons...

    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...

    I really wanted to do something to change 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 want to bring a change to my country ,

    especially In the way the people think, the way of life, be more modest and finally give them a good reason to follow their dreams rather than to live their lives the way someone else wants them to.

    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.

    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...

    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.
