Success is not dependent on how much money you make in life, it is about how many lives you are able to impact. Words that when written on paper mean nothing, but when they are taken to heart and lived, a true difference can be made. High school particularly is difficult for many of us to make a difference. We are growing up, making a future for ourselves, and few of us have the time to drop everything and serve. But you don’t have to travel very far to see the problems in our own country. There are many problems worldwide, and making a difference starts at home. We need to focus on the pressing issues around us – the impoverished, the homeless, even the teens and peers in our own schools. There are problems that aren’t seen, the children who are lost in our class cliques who just need to feel included. Service is everywhere and is always needed. So start somewhere! Positivity is contagious – and acting in a positive way will create a positive community.
