Lacey Duckart Role models are a huge part of our lives. Some are there from the beginning, and others come later on. I met mine when I was in first grade. Lacey Duckart was a 5th grader that I only knew as my safety patrol, or the person that walked me to the bus at the end of the day. I never thought she’d end up being so...

Stephen Mark from Canton, GA USA JANUARY 5, 2014
I can think of one really special person that touched many lives through his music, however his untimely and early death was saddening. This person is israel-kamakawiwo from Hawaii. He redid the song "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" against all odds. Many people like him would have shyed away from the public eye, but not this young man - bless his soul. His voice, his skill made him famous, and wonderfully- the world looked past his heavy weight stature. It is a wonderful thing that people accepted him for who he was, not how he looked. Something that happens around the world every single moment, second, minute, hour, day, week, month, year, decade. It shows, we all can be less judgemental of persons if we open our hearts and souls and truely get to know a person, in person - not just on a computer or TV. His legacy to me is that there are NO BOUNDARIES TO WHAT A BEING CAN ACCOMPLISH IF THEY ARE WILLING TO IGNORE ALL THE NEGATIVITY DIRECTED AT THEM. That being said, I can personally speak from real life experiences. His song would make such a heart felt and touching impact across many generations. For the many people that have left remarks stating "I want" as the first words need to think, do they really want to do what they claim, if yes, all that is needed is ACTION. A desire or goal is nothing without the ACTION to take steps towards the want. If youd like more fresh perspectives like this, please let me know and the time will be made to better this world and all our relationships. Best, Stephen Mark

Dream then do.

Arthur from WY JUNE 15, 2012
I want to go on a journey across the USA by foot, and write about my experiences. I don't care if the book doesn't sell, but just that someone else will read it and want to experience life differently.

sabra from sacramento JUNE 13, 2012
I want to be more compassionate towards people.
