Be the change. It’s so simple. Volunteer. Give. Just smile at someone. I think of these tiny acts and wonder if I make a difference in the world. As we enter the season of Christmas, we begin with Thanksgiving, a time to reflect on all the good we’ve experienced. For some of us it’s hard to see; friends are sick, the elderly die, good people are without work while others exploit a system of handouts. But what matters most is not what we have or take, or even what we need, but what we give.
I am a friend, wife, mother, and volunteer. I do make a difference. I am an educator.
