I believe that everyone can make a difference in the world. No matter how small you are or how insignificant you think you are. If you speak up for what you think is wrong, it can pay off.

Even if everyone is against you, speak up. It doesn’t matter what other people think of you. You do what you think is right. Even if you are afraid of it. Thomas Edison was afraid of the dark and he made one of the greatest inventions. The light bulb. People didn’t think it was possible for that to happen, but in the end he did it and made that light bulb work. He believed in what he did, and kept on doing it. Now he complete changed the way we look at things. It doesn’t have to be that big either. Just throwing a water bottle in the recycling bin can make a difference. I know I try to recycle at home. Plastic and cans is what we do. Its just as simple as putting the right thing in the right trash bin or whatever. If everyone did that the world would be a lot better place.

I believe that everyone can make a difference in his world. No matter how small you are.
