Hello change, it's nice to meet you.

Here's to being part of the of the generation that can cause a memorable change reaction.


Inaugural words of Pres. Obama (lifted from the NY Times multimedia section)

As we continue to hope while crossing our fingers, may we constantly remember that it takes small but consistent steps for us to change the world. It boils down to being aware of how we can actively participate in the chaotic yet moving world of humanity.

You don't have to be part of an institution to become a change-maker or to wax intellectually about sustainability or social activism. All of a sudden everyone has become aware that we are all capable to become free-agents for change. Because at the end of the day (not to sound preachy), it simply boils down to kindness. It's the random but constant act of kindness towards humanity that initiates long-lasting progress. Slowly, but surely.

We can start with this. :)

There are some great tips and "activities" that you can do to make a significant difference in school or your own communities. Just a simple reminder, have fun being kind.

Pass it on.
