I just read the article from the Christian Science Monitor and I found it very inspiring. What did everyone else think? Imagine kids getting so involved in their world at such a young age!
I was just wondering if anyone else had a similar experience of doing something that “matters” in high school.
Personally, I never did anything on this scale. One of my English teachers was always making us enter poetry and playwriting contests. I won one of them and that got me more interested in writing, but it was a very individualized experience. As I think about it, all of my work in high school was extremely individualized. Sometimes we would write editorials for class, but we never sent them to the paper. Everything was contained within the school. Did anyone have a different experience?
