SEND TO A FRIEND:

    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

    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...

    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 want to change one life at least

    while I'm on this planet. I want one person to look at me and say "because of you things are different" . It's not something everyone wants to do , but it's possible.

    Only you get to decide

    when you quit. No well intended friend, no parent who?s only trying to protect you, and no teacher who?s supposed to bring out the best in you, can make you turn your back on something you?re passionate about.

    We must remember that one determined person can

    make a significant difference, and that a small group of determined people can change the course of history.

    This world is all screwed up.

    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 want to teach. I believe

    that difference begins with education and ideals. I don't know how my life will end up, but if I impact the life of a single person, then I've made a difference.
