Living in a society consumed by materialism, we are told that success is measured in monetary form. It is only when one is brave enough to step back and look beyond themselves do they come to the realization that there are people who have lost, or have never even had, basic necessities for livelihood. In this interconnected, interdependent world, every action makes a difference. It is up to us if that is going to be a positive or negative mark on the world. I have chosen to live informed, aware, and motivated to act in a way that shoes a better tomorrow for not only myself, but future generations.
