Good “Tuesday!” Afternoon my Brothers and Sisters wherever you are on this beautiful blue sphere we ride through space on...

Today is: “Make a Difference Day!” Why Not?

"Small acts of kindness can make a difference in other peoples lives more than we can imagine. " -
Catherine Pulsifer

"We have the potential to help people out of poverty, out of disease, out of slavery, and out of conflict. Too often, we turn the other way because we think there's nothing we can do." - Alicia Keys

"The purpose of life is not to be happy - but to matter, to be productive, to be useful, to have it make some difference that you have lived at all." - Leo Rosten

"When we work together, we have power to take problems head on and make a huge difference in our life and in the lives of others around us." - David DeNotaris

"By becoming a mentor, you will touch the life of a child, make a difference for tomorrow's youth, and give back to your community by investing in a young person who will, in turn, mentor the next generation." - Thomas Dortch, The Miracles of Mentoring

"We won't always know whose lives we touched and made better for our having cared, because actions sometimes have unforeseen ramifications. What's important is that you do care and you act. " - Charlotte Lunsford

"When we get to the end of our life, the question playing over and over in our mind will be, "Did my life make a difference?" - Brian Fleming, Your Life Matters

And so it is with others, like for instance our Leaders. Read on...

“Leaders can choose to make a difference and lead from the front with vision and purpose, or they can hide behind closed doors and make armchair decisions that lack purpose and drive. We saw a great example of that yesterday.” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

Spot on!
Is your RP account all screwed up? I haven't received any RP email since early yesterday and apparently I just joined.

Lt Col John (Jack) Christensen - Things are slowly coming back to some semblance of normalcy... whatever that is in today's environment... I have been reset like everyone else, but I seem to have had some successes... There are issues that none of us may like, but we either live with them or do something else with our time... Personally, I believe that RP has made a mistake that may not be recoverable long term... Hey, but who am I in the scheme of things... LOL!

Good morning Kerry and my friends on RallyPoint! !Would that we all made a positive difference in the world

“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events. It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”
― Robert F. Kennedy

“In a gentle way, you can shake the world.”
― Mahatma Gandhi

“No work is insignificant. All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.

“I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.”
― Edward Everett Hale

“I have one life and one chance to make it count for something... My faith demands that I do whatever I can, wherever I am, whenever I can, for as long as I can with whatever I have to try to make a difference.”
― Jimmy Carter

“You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world.”
― Woodrow Wilson

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
― Mahatma Gandhi

“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.”
― Leo Tolstoy

“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.”
― Mother Teresa
