YOur story reminds me of a book I just read to my son from the library. It was about lighting your candle. Of coarse, it was 3 gradeschool girls that started helping their neighbors in a "bad part of the city", and their example slowly turned their neighborhood around. They faced ridicule and adversaries by doing this, but the girls did it with a glad heart. Eventually the neighbors felt if these "kids" could do something good for others, so should they! Through their SHINING example (their one candle), they spread the infectious attitude, and others became helpful, hopeful, and HAPPY.
