"i can make a difference"

By WutCanBrownDo4u09 Feb 11, 2005 262 Words
In today's world, a lot can be said about making a difference. People who believe that they can make a difference are the people who shape our society today. Those individuals have helped us in bettering the world we have today.

Making a difference was just as important over a hundred years ago as it is today. It is important to keep in mind that one person can and has made a difference. Take for example Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King in the Civil Rights movement. I want to make an impact on the world much like theirs and change the views of our society.

I have, for the majority of my life, lived a sheltered life, and have never realized how corrupt our society really was. Our nation has, in some ways, proved to be without moral. In fact, the entire world is based on "the rich get richer" theory. I, for one want to change that. I want to be a government official that supports morality, understands the people, and truly unites the nation. I want everybody to have the opportunity to live a decent life that is not limited by his or her financial situation, race, or background. I want to be able to stop hate crimes, terminate prejudice, and open up a new, more peaceful world.

I understand that it would be difficult to accomplish all that I would like to, but it all starts with small steps. Small steps can be taken to accomplish big things. Anyone can make a difference, it just takes the right attitudes and decisions
