This evening I was watching Oprah (it airs twice a day in my fantastic town). I’m not one of those die hard, cry if Oprah came to town fans,but I watch when I get the chance. But, as I was watching started CRYING. Okay, so I cry a lot when I watch t.v., but this time was different. Oprah had a group of high school students who participated in the “High School Challenge“. I was crying because the show documented the power of change and how it just takes one person to heal and make their community a better place to live in. It also showed the power that one person has (and how they really doesn’t understand that power) to hurt. 64 students lives were forever changed, and I just hope that they are able to pay their experience forward.
