    I really wanted to do something to change the

    world for the better. I found this organization called Children International. At first, I thought it was a scam (it's sad that scams have become such a justified concern), but on further investigation, I was relieved to find out it's legit. I have been sponsoring three...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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.
