“I’m starting with the man in the mirror
I’m asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you want to make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself, and then make a change”
“Man in the Mirror” (1988)
Kids are keen observers of the world around them. This month we asked, “What changes would you like to see in the world in 2016? And how do you think you could help make it happen?”
Robby P. (9 years old) said that he would like to see us use less gas and make less trash. And that he would try to recycle to help the cause.
Fara B. (9) said that she would like to see people be nicer to other people. And that she would pray to God and tell Him to tell the people to be nice to others.
Dylan P. (8) said he thinks that the people should stop being bad. And that he can help by listening to God.
Zandell B. (8) said people should stop doing drugs and smoking. And that he would pray to God for others to not do drugs.
