    Ok, I'll tell you something about a recent

    history in my country, Bosnia and Herzegovina. It's about a war we had. I come from a catholic background but I'm a leftist and a liberal, so I'm not biased by nationalistic propaganda. It's a bit complicated but I'll explain. The neighbour countries of Bosnia are Croatia and...

    Not the whole world. People often make the

    mistake of forgetting their place in this vast universe. We are small, insignificant notes in a divine symphony. But I want to change the world for people who count. For the ones who need it most. It doesn't take as much as you might think, changing a life one day, one kind...

    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.

    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 look back at my 42 years

    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...

    ref_=nm_flmg_act_8 Movie: Fair Game 2010, is awesome. Sean Penn and Naomi Watts, had a great performance here. The movie shows how government and media propaganda manipulate people and lead a nation into war. If you want to see how the US went into war with Iraq, watch this.

    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."

    Do you recognize those next to you in life?

    Do you pause for moments and hold doors for others in consideration regardless of recognition? Do you draw a circle in life greater than yourself and make attempts to put others in it? Are you human?
