Gratitude is the inward feeling of kindness received.
Thankfulness is the natural impulse to express that feeling. Thanksgiving is the following of that impulse.

The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
Hope lies in dreams, in imagination, and in the courage of those who dare to make dreams into reality.
Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.

Peace means solving these differences through dialogue, education, knowledge and through humane ways.
The simplest acts of kindness are by far more powerful then a thousand heads bowing in prayer.

The Pending Coffee
In a small coffee shop. Two customers arrive.
“5 coffees. 2 for us, 3 pending.” They pay for the 5, they only get 2.
After a while, 3 lawyers ask for 7 coffees. they drink only 3, but paid for all 7.
A poor man enters the shop. With a soft voice, he asks “Do you have any pending coffee?”
This type of charity was born in Napoli (Naples, Italy). People pay in anticipation for the coffees and even meals for others who can’t.
We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.
– George Bernard Shaw
I’m not a grownup, just a kid who has been around for a while.
Believe in yourself. Always go back to the person that you know you are.
Don’t let anybody tell you any different, because everyone’s special and everyone’s awesome.
– McKayla Maroney
