I feel that it's a terrific idea to get all the living Presidents and have them inspire young people to help out in the community. A lot of kids see the troubles in their community. I know that sometimes kids feel as if they alone and can't do anything. But that's not true. Everyone can make a difference. Everyone can help. All of us are like little flickers of a fire when we try to help. Once everyone helps, it is like we are a huge fire. If everyone could just help, and do one little thing a day, it would make the largest impact. So, get out there and help. Sometimes the best thing you can get back is a "thank you." Remember the Summit shouldn't be three days out of 365, but 365 out of 365 days. fl
