Today at school the entire student body attended a presentation based on, "Rachel's Challenge." You may have heard of it. Rachel Scott was the first person shot and killed at Columbine High School in 1999. She had a premonition she was going to die young, but that'd she still have a profound impact on the world. After she died, her father and family started a program to teach others what she believed in and to carry on a chain reaction of compassion and kindness. Her message is meaningful, emotional and if it hasn't already reached your ears and invaded your mind, I heartily encourage you to visit http://www.rachelschallenge.org to learn more.
I feel guilty, now, for all the instances I could've said something to brighten someone's day and didn't. Or didn't even give being friends with someone I didn't know a chance for whatever reason. I understand it is difficult to eliminate all prejudice, but I am more than willing to try.
I don't want to write too much, although this has had an impact on me and I definitely want to put it in this, my online journal, and later in my private journal. There is a ton I'm feeling that I cannot easily express in words. I am also aware of the fact that neglecting my homework will not be positive...
Though for now, I have a question for all my readers and/or followers that I would really love if you'd please take a few minutes to answer.
What is your goal in life?
