Together We Can Make A Difference

Check This Out! It's time for all humans to stand up and help make a difference. Why do we continue to make the same mistakes over and over? With a bit of effort almost any college graduate can make a major difference to the lives of hundreds of others. It would make even the most cynical person feel that one person can influence for the better in so many ways!

The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well. It's the action, not the fruit of the action, that's important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there'll be any fruit. But that doesn't mean you stop doing the right thing.

Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events. It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope.
