Pay It Forward

Thursday, January 1, 2009
During my winter break Eunice, Nikki and I Paid it Forward by helping Eunice's neighbor. Her parents said that the lady who lived there was getting old, so we decided to shovel her side walk for her. Our act of kindness began on Saturday, December 27th. We all met up at Eunice's house and also shoveled some her sidewalk for her parents.

When we got to the neighbors house and rang her doorbell nobody answered. So we just did or job anonymously. We noticed that part of her side walk was already shoveled so we tried our best to remove the ice for her steps. After our job was done I felt like doing more. Doing something nice for someone really makes you feel like you accomplished a lot by just one act. That is the whole point of this assignment, to take time from our busy lives and help someone else in need. Since nobody was home we didn't get to ask them to participate in Pay it Forward, but I do hope that they noticed what we did for them and that it inspires them to do something nice for someone.

Can one person make a difference?
Of course one person can make a difference! If one couldn't, then we wouldn't have all the things we have today.
