It’s easy to feel helpless.Like you can’t change the world around you.Like there is an unstoppable evil taking over the world, and there’s nothing you can do to stop it.I feel like that, and I’m sure you do too.But you have to remember: you are not alone.You are not the only one who wants to see the best in other people.You are not the only one who cries over news of children being torn apart from their parents at the border.You are not the only one who thinks students should not need bulletproo...

If you google the word, “inspiration”, it will come up with this definition: “The process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative.” Three cheers for whoever wrote that definition, because that is not something that is easily put into words.
