In school we are taught about the men and women that have made a difference in society and the world but yet, we are ourselves are not taught how we too can make a difference. We Americans, live in a country that can achieve so much but are blinded by the advancing technology that consumes our weekly paychecks. As the youth of the country, let alone the world, we need to ask ourselves how we can change the world and make it better. Our country's two main political parties supposedely represent a bit of every American citizen. But where is the American party, a group where the rich are not necessary to have the opportunity to run for office. A party that allows, the average American, the real American, the opportunity to make things right, to step up and make a difference? That party is within all of us, but is pushed aside by the idea that "I am only one person, what can I do?" All it takes is one person to make a difference in the world, if your point is well received you will receive support. As the saying goes, Rome was not built overnight. It takes time to make a difference, to better the lives of not only American citizens but people all over the world. The basic principles of respect, honesty and perserverance can help you achieve the strongest of your goals. Together, our baby steps and small acts of kindness can change the world for the better.
