At least once a day at school, someone asks me why I'm always laughing and smiling at a time like this. For those of you who don't know, the date 9/11 is coming up and there's a hurricane that might hit our city (New Orleans, Louisiana). And of course with all the tests we have for the next two weeks and all of the homework we have. So why be happy at a time like this? The reason is because we live in a world full of hate and anger, right? Why not just smile and make the best of what we have? There's no need to add more negativity in a world already full of negativity. I'm not saying go do this huge thing for the world, but something small like smiling at someone in the hallways you usually don't smile at. Because trust me, one smile could change a whole persons day:)
