Pay it Forward

In class we watched the movie "Pay it forward", it is about a person that believes that just one person can make a difference. After watching the movie, we were asked to do a random act of kindness over the holiday's and ask them to "pay it forward". I decided that I was going to help out my church by serving food at a free lunch that they were having at the church. I did this on Sunday, January 4Th. I chose this act because I would be helping a lot of people at once, and because it would make me feel like a better person.

1) What happened?

2) How did you feel?

3) How did the person or people react?

4) Did you ask the person or people involved to "pay it forward"? How did the person or people react to this?

5) If you did not ask the person or people to pay it forward, how come?

I served food to people from my church and also people not from my church. As I served the food people smiled at me and thanked me for it. It felt great to know that I was helping my church for a good cause. The person in charge of the event was grateful that I had volunteered for the event. When I asked her if she would "pay it forward", she gave me a funny look and asked what that was. I explained it to her, and she said that she would pay it forward and not forget.

The question is: Can one person make a difference? My answer to that would have to be YES, of course one person can make a difference, it doesn't have to big or life changing, as long as you do something good and it makes the person you did it for happy, and that's all that matters.

That was how I did my "Pay it Forward" over the holiday's.

Great job Kara! I liked your picture, and the way you used different colours. I also liked how you organized all your information into three paragraphs, very neatly. Well, great job, again!
