When you consider that the vast majority of us work in menial jobs -- I've never done anything you couldn't train a monkey to do -- there are few who make much difference in our working lives. It's probably enough if we can say that we don't make things worse.
So that leaves the rest of our lives, the time when we can truly be ourselves.
But yes, I think I make a difference although a tiny one.
Since I retired I've written web pages for a few community groups, taught square dancing for two years, taught creative writing for three, written columns for suburban newspapers, and was breakfast announcer on a community radio station for two years. And in all those areas there was one thing I tried to achieve -- laughter. I think, at least I hope, that if you can make people laugh, or smile, then you're achieving something.
Every one makes a difference in this world.No matter how small or large our contribution,we make a difference.Personally,I think,I make a difference every day.With a smile,a good morning and even a simple hello.
I care for the elderly & spend my time engaging residents to participate in the daily activities. So I believe I do along with all my other members in our team make a difference to all that I have the pleasure to assist.
