From Feelings to Battle Cries

                  What kind of difference can you make? You’re just one person. You’re just one incapable person. What kind of impact can you have? What is the use of trying? You’re just … Fill in the blank, we’ve all heard this before numerous times. You can’t really do anything. You can’t, because you don’t believe you can. What if Martin Luther King Jr. had thought he was only one person? What could he do? What if Abraham Lincoln thought he was incapable? What if David Archuleta had never tried out for American Idol :(? What if he had given up on singing because he had vocal paralysis? Forest fires start off with just a spark and waterfalls start with just a drop of water.
              We, in America, have so much to be thankful for. We have cable TV, there are McDonalds everywhere and Starbucks around every corner. I just want to give you a taste of how far our money can go in Africa. $7 can SUSTAIN a life of 1 person living with AIDS, it can PROVIDE 7 people with clean water for a whole YEAR and it can SAVE the life of 1 person with malaria. $7 is just two cups of coffee. Just think what you could do by giving up two cups of coffee a month for a whole year. Just think of what you can do - what you can change. You have the power to change the world. Forest fires start off with just a spark and waterfalls start with just a drop of water.

Simple feelings can turn into battle cries:

What are you doing to change the world? Comment below on everyday things you do to help make a difference. :)

  1. I turn off the water while I brush my teeth. Being responsible with what I am given to help save our resources!

  2. I turn off lights when I leave the room. Every little bit helps the enviroment! I also recycle my newspapers and plastic bags.

  3. Just being kind - as much as you possibly can - makes a huge difference in your own life and the lives of those around you. Sounds simple, but it can hard. Thing never know what peoplea are going through.
