God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
-- Reinhold Niebuhr
It is so sad to see some things that happen everyday in the world, in this country. I know there isn't anything I can do about it but dwell on it and pray for things to get better. But that doesn't make it any more of a relief for me to want to change things. I have realized a lot lately that I want to do my part in making a difference in peoples lives. I want to do things that help people. Not really sure what I will need to do to gain this unquenchable want that I have. But with the devastation in Haiti, a poor little boy who was severely injured a few miles away from here, little kids being picked up off the streets and murdered, friends children or family being really sick; it really makes me want to do something to make a difference. I mean, I pray for these people, I have donated money to Haiti, I donated clothes to Goodwill this weekend, etc etc but I feel like that's not enough. It's not enough good deeds done to those who are suffering.
