Today a representative came to talk to my school about Rachel Scott. She was a great person who died in the horrific Columbine High School tragedy. The assembly was inspiring and really moved me.

Before the day of the assembly, I had been trying to better myself by simply being kind to others. After the assembly, I got the idea of just saying thanks to the wonderful staff at my high school.

So, starting tomorrow, I will be putting a little piece of paper into all their mailboxes each day. The notes will say "thank you" and will show them that they are appreciated. I can't wait to start! I am committed to doing this for the rest of my senior year.

I know that I am the type of person that gets all teary eyed when people thank me for a kindness or a job well done. I think I am this way for two reasons-first it seems to happen more and more rarely as people get caught up in their own lives and forget the little kindnesses. And second, it reminds me that I matter and I need to show others that they matter as well.

I too saw the Rachel's Challenge presentation and was moved. My challenge is to bring this presentation to every school in our school district. Rachel is watching and she is proud of you for hearing her message and for making a promise to make a difference through random acts of kindness.
