When Peter Benson talks about how every kid has a “Spark” and that we, as society simply aren’t naturally inclined to discover or ignite those Sparks, it both saddens me and makes me more determined than ever to be a part of positive change.
The scale of the challenge is overwhelming – there are 2.2 billion children under 18 in the world today – but the potential to start small and make a real difference quickly is equally inspiring. Take the time to watch this video, and you’ll see what I mean.
Try setting a goal of finding the underlying Spark in five children you know. When you do, please come back and share the most interesting ones in this blog’s comment thread. It doesn’t have to be long. It would be interesting to see a range of the “Sparks” that are secretly driving children all over the country!
