If there's one thing I've learned this summer, it's this - one person has the ability to change the whole world, our whole future. Maybe the person sitting next to you on the first day of school who is struggling through life will someday win the Nobel Peace Prize. You never know who it will be, and everyone has the capability. It's all about motivation and circumstance. Who knows, maybe it will be you who finds an alternate energy source? Even the tiniest action on our part can save someone's life - say hello to the person who has no friends, stand up for someone who needs the help, or support a cause that is important to you. Maybe you will be the voice this world needs.
I want to make people think about that more. It's the little things. I don't care about winning, it's not about that. It's about getting people to think.
And being "cool" at school shouldn't be about getting the most attention because you wear the latest clothes, or have the newest laptop skin, or have a ton of 'friends' you don't even know. That's not what life is about. The truly cool people in life are the leaders, who don't care what others think because they know they are working for a greater cause. Who help the people in need even if it's not what others see as "cool" because they know it's the right thing to do. They are the people who we subconsciously look up to. So forget the peer pressure, and change the world. I dare you.
