It’s has been done before. The same types of blog posts about helping others around the world or in your own community. I want this one to be different.
“The best way you find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”- Gandhi
Today in my Environmental Science AP class we talked about hunger and Genetically Modified Crops. Our teacher showed us a TED Talk video about ending hunger. This video spoke a lot to me because of the progress of the world as well as the lack of progress. I believe in helping everyone who is in need. A lot of teens feel the same but unfortunately we are to young and inexperienced to anything- or so every adult says. When I was younger my parents were discussing something about how a person who had committed a crime should be dealt with. I said that it wasn’t up to us to administer punishment and mercy. My father then returned with “You haven’t been in the world to see enough of it”.
Is that true? I don’t think so. I have seen a lot in the world already. Mercy, compassion, caring, giving, love. There are people out there in this world that all they seen in people are those qualities and have those qualities themselves. It is lovely to see people show these qualities.
When I get older I want to travel to other countries to share these qualities with people. Everyone needs love and compassion.
I am a Lifeguard. There is a certain level of help that we bestow on people through our job. I want to show this help to other people in need.
So I leave you with something to remember. How will you make your mark on the world?
