Hannah's Take: Believe You Can Make a Difference

by Kevin and Hannah Salwen

About 111 women die of breast cancer every day in the United States. A million teenagers get pregnant each year. Someone dies every thirty-one minutes because of drunken drivers. I'm not writing this to bum you out. But you might be thinking, There are so many problems, there's no way that I or any one person could solve anything.

When civil-rights activist Rosa Parks refused to move to the back of a public bus in 1955, she never dreamed of the impact she would have on millions of lives. "I didn't have any idea just what my actions would bring about," she said years later. "At the time I was arrested I didn't know how the community would react." The reason Ms. Parks didn't get up is that she knew the racist laws were wrong.

Rosa Parks is just one of the thousands of influential people whose actions changed the views of many people today. Think about Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Greg Mortenson, John Woolman, Madame Curie (if you don't know them, check them out; they're all remarkable). Sometimes small acts significantly affect a large group of people. But even when they don't, they can have a big influence, maybe on just one individual.

So don't get discouraged because you can't solve a whole problem alone. As the British philosopher Edmund Burke said, "Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could only do a little." I know exactly what he was talking about. Before our family project I kept telling myself that no matter how hard I tried or how much money I gave, I would never be able to fully solve any of the world's big problems. When I worked at Café 458, the Atlanta restaurant for homeless men and women, I saw dozens of people come in looking depressed and lonely. But still I didn't see them as individuals, but instead as a group, "the homeless."

Then one day at Café 458 I heard two homeless men talking about a college basketball game that I had watched with my dad the night before. I snapped to the realization that these people are people. How stupid and rude I had been to see them as different from me. I realize now that having that epiphany was a big step for me. In that split second of comprehension, I switched from seeing them as a group of people to viewing them as individuals. When I started seeing people in need as individuals, the problem of homelessness and hunger seemed smaller and I felt like I could make more of a difference. I also started believing that I could help because the problem was on a personal level.

Activity
Think of a person from your community who inspires you. Look beyond his or her specific actions to the kind of qualities that person brings to work or volunteer activities. For example, some people are better at creating new programs than at actually putting them into action; other people are doers, ready to take someone else's ideas and run with them. Is that aunt in your family a problem-solver? A good listener? An inspirer?

Now think about your strengths in the same light. If you took your best characteristics out into the world, how could you use them to make a difference? Are you patient? Maybe you would be a good tutor. Are you musical? Maybe you could be playing the guitar at a nursing home (and bringing your family along to sing—no talent required). We all have gifts the world can use.

I will remember the ancient pandora jewelry law of averages and I will bend it to my good. I will persist with knowledge that each failure to sell will increase my chance for success at the next attempt. Each nay I hear will bring me closer to the sound of yea pandora uk sale. Each frown I meet only prepares me for the smile to come. Each misfortune I encounter will carry in it the seed of tomorrow's good luck. I must have the night to appreciate the day. I must fail often to succeed only once pandora charms on sale. Henceforth, I will learn and apply another secret of those who excel in my work. When each day is ended, not regarding whether it has been a success or a failure, I will attempt to achieve one more sale. When my thoughts pandora charm beckon my tired body homeward I will resist the temptation to depart. I will try again. I will build my castle one brick at a time for I know that small attempts, repeated, will complete any undertaking. I will never consider pandora charms sale defeat and I will remove from my vocabulary such words and phrases as quit, cannot, unable, impossible, out of the question, improbable, failure, unworkable, hopeless, and retreat; for they are the words of fools pandora charm bracelet. I will avoid despair but if this disease of the mind should infect me then I will work on in despair. I will toil and I will endure. I will ignore the obstacles at my feet and keep mine eyes on the goals above my head cheap pandora, for I know that where dry desert ends, green grass grows. I will make one more attempt to close with victory, and if that fails I will make another. Never will I allow any day to end with a failure. Thus will I plant pandora charms online the seed of tomorrow's success and gain an insurmountable advantage over those who cease their labor at a prescribed time. When others cease their struggle, the mine will begin, and my harvest will be full pandora bracelets. Nor will I allow yesterday's success to lull me into today's complacency, for this is the great foundation of failure. I will forget the happenings of the day that is gone, whether they were good or bad, and greet the new sun pandora bracelets uk with confidence that this will be the best day of my life.

The corporate world's<a href="http://www.salembtshoes.net">Mbt Shoes</a> darling, Research In Motion's (Nasdaq: RIMM) BlackBerry, will not be able to<a href="http://www.4unj.com/">cheap NFL jerseys</a> stop Apple's (Nasdaq: AAPL) iPhone and Google's (Nasdaq: GOOG) Android juggernaut, as it lacks a key arsenal in its armory-applications. A CNN report says that currently, Apple has<a href="http://www.jerseys-buy.com/">jerseys</a> close to 250,000 apps. Android has 100,000, followed by<a href="http://www.4unj.com/">wholesale NFL jerseys</a> BlackBerry with 8,000, and Palm WebOS with 3,500 apps. A recent report by<a href="http://www.4unj.com/">NFL jerseys</a> Nielsen revealed that 50% of BlackBerry holders are contemplating switching over to either an<a href="http://www.jerseys-buy.com/">cheap jerseys</a> iPhone or an Android-based phone.

Applications provide customers the<a href="http://www.4unj.com/">cheap NFL jerseys</a> opportunity to personalize their phones with<a href="http://www.jerseys-buy.com/">Wholesale jerseys</a> wallpapers, social games, music downloads, and new icons, thus making applications a critical minimum for smartphones. In fact, the current success of the<a href="http://www.4unj.com/">wholesale NFL jerseys</a> present smartphone industry is<a href="http://www.jerseys-buy.com/soccer-jersey.html">Soccer Jersey</a> largely driven by the acceptance of the smartphone OS by developers. Apple iPhone App Store says its applications for iPhones are provided after vetting them thoroughly, thus paving the way for<a href="http://www.salembtshoes.net">mbt sale</a> developers to produce the best apps for Apple. Ovum, a Datamonitor company, reported that<a href="http://www.jerseys-buy.com/">cheap jerseys</a> iPhone manufacturer generated 67% of all<a href="http://www.jerseys-buy.com/nhl-jerseys.html">nhl jerseys</a> mobile application downloads in 2009, though its smartphone market share was only 14%. Ovum expects<a href="http://www.jerseys-buy.com/">Wholesale jerseys</a> mobile application downloads from non-operator application stores to<a href="http://www.jerseys-buy.com/nba-jerseys.html">nba jerseys</a> increase by a compound annual growth rate of 41% through 2015. Total downloads over that span are expected to jump to 21.3 billion from 2.69 billion in 2009. Generally, developers prefer ease of coding in<a href="http://www.jerseys-buy.com/soccer-jersey.html">Soccer Jersey</a> an OS that allows them to<a href="http://www.jerseys-buy.com/mlb-jerseys.html">mlb jerseys</a> migrate successfully to other platforms. Nonetheless, the Nielsen report<a href="http://www.jerseys-buy.com/nhl-jerseys.html">nhl jerseys</a> suggests that Androids have taken over Apple, being an<a href="http://www.jerseys-buy.com/nfl-jerseys.html">nfl jerseys</a> open-source platform. Thus the Android will compete on the<a href="http://wqsilver.blogspot.com/">http://wqsilver.blogspot.com/</a> basis of quantity of apps, while Apple iPhones will compete on the basis of quality. But legalizing jailbreaking could be<a href="http://www.jerseys-buy.com/nba-jerseys.html">nba jerseys</a> a game-changer, since it allows reconfiguration of iPhones to<a href="http://www.jerseys-buy.com/World-Cup-2010.html">World Cup 2010</a> adopt Apple's restricted applications. It allows a fair play between Android and iPhones. This leaves BlackBerry and PalmWeb OS in the lurch. Not long ago, Palm ruled the corporate market, and its Pre model was considered to be an iPhone killer, but due to lack of apps, it was<a href="http://www.salembtshoes.net">Mbt</a> swapped by Hewlett-Packard (NYSE: HPQ) for a paltry sum of $1.2 billion. Lack of applications hinders the popularity of smartphones. In case of<a href="http://www.jerseys-buy.com/mlb-jerseys.html">mlb jerseys</a> BlackBerry, users have to wait for<a href="http://www.salembtshoes.net">Mbt Shoes</a> another launch instead of updating their devices with new apps. Moreover, new applications are a key source of after-sales revenue for companies, which the BlackBerry may miss out. Thus, it's <a href="http://www.jerseys-buy.com/nfl-jerseys.html">nfl jerseys</a>the developer who will decide the future of smartphones. Currently, developers closely watch the new phone sales figures to<a href="http://www.salembtshoes.net">Mbt Shoes on sale</a> anticipate the market direction as they get the lead time to write suitable applications. The battle will be <a href="http://www.jerseys-buy.com/World-Cup-2010.html">World Cup 2010</a>a choice exercised by developers between competing OSes, and as of now, Google's Android and iPhone iOS are leading the pack. Otherwise, the situation is<a href="http://www.salembtshoes.net">Mbt outlet</a> quite reminiscent of the bygone days of the <a href="http://www.salembtshoes.net">cheap mbt shoes</a>open-source Linux vs. Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) Windows battle.
