Pay it Forward

We watched a movie at school called Pay it Forward. The message in the movie is that one person can make a difference - but can someone really make a difference? We don't know, that's why I'm going to do a project; I'll Pay it Forward. We have to do one act of kindness this holiday. So who should I help? I should help my little brother. I saw he had a hard time reading. What am I going to do? I decided to help him read. Where am I going to do this? I was thinking about a quiet place, where no one could interrupt when he was reading. When am I going to do this? I would help him everyday over the holidays so he will get it right and improve.

Here is a picture of me helping him.

I've been helping him ever since the beginning of the holidays. He improved and got better at reading. He was happy that I helped him and I was too. He asked what to do in return I said, "Pay it Forward." He didn't know what Pay it Forward was so I told him. I said I help him and he has to help someone else and they help someone and so on. He told me that is too big of a job but I said it could be anything simple. I told him you could Pay it Forward when your older but don't forget the idea. He was stunned at first then thought about it, he told me he liked the idea that he would Pay it Forward.

So can one person make a difference? I believe one person can make a difference. If you can find the time to make someone feel happy that is something huge, you just made a difference. When the person asks what to do in return tell them to Pay it Forward. When that happens, it will go on and on and on. So yes, one person CAN make a difference and WILL.

Great job Zerlina! I liked how you used different colours, and made some words bold. Now, it's really easy to understand. I also liked your picture, and how you explained your "pay it forward" experience. Great job, again!
