Pay It Forward

Sunday, January 4, 2009
Have you ever thought of helping someone out , without getting anything back? I know most teens think "Oh that's a waste of time!" But really it's just a nice thing to do, especially if someone has done something nice for you.

On the last day of school, before winter break all the grade 8 students watched a movie called "Pay It Forward" about doing random acts of kindness for people. We were given an assignment to do a random act of kindness ourselves, there were many possibilities.

For my random act of kindness I shoveled the backyard for my dad. My dad said he was going to go shovel the backyard so i offered to do it myself and he was surprised because when he asks me to do it i say that it's to cold! I told him i would do it because i had to Pay It Forward. He asked me what pay it forward was and i told him about our assignment, I said because i was shoveling then he should pay it forward somehow too and he offered me money, but i didn't take it. I told him to do something nice for someone else. I thought it was really cold outside so I dressed up really warm so I was fine. It took be about an half an hour to finish the shoveling, which isn't that long, but i still did it because my dad has done a lot!
