" Some people don't know what that one thing in life is that makes them happy. It could be anything in the world...anything at all. Others have found what that one thing is, and if you haven't that doesn't mean you won't find it because you will. It is only hiding from you and you have the flashlight. So go and find that one thing and never ever let it go."

Author Unknown --- Submitted by Natalie T., Age 15 --- California
When you feel like you've made too many mistakes and caused too much damage that there's nothing more you can do, just relax and hand it over to God, or the universe, or whatever that "superior force" may be. Let what's going to happen just HAPPEN, and deal with it when it does. What's supposed to happen will happen, so just breathe.August 28, 2006

" You are amazing. Amazing isn't measured in how tall you are, it isn't measured by how many laps you can run, and it's not measured by how high your grades are. It's not measured by how many friends you have, nor is it measured by how many people consider you to be their friend. Amazing is measured by the amount of times in a day when you smile when you truly are angry, the amount of times you bite your tongue, just because you know everyone will hear you, and the amount of times you laugh, just to bide your time until you can cry. Amazing is measured by the stuff inside of you. The stuff that makes you you, and... you are amazing."

Written in 2006 by Phillip B., Age 14 --- Illinois
Don't act like the people on bet just because you think they're cool. Be what you want to be and be who you are because that way you have nothing to lose, celebrities do... money. Without money they have no fame and later they will be on the street with a sign saying, "will rap for change".August 2, 2006

School is about to start again,
Everyone is waiting for the new year to begin.
We've finally reached high school,
The place where you find out whether or not you're cool.

Time to get ready for peer pressure,
And to try our hardest to stay pure.
In class we'll either rack our brains,
Or just daydream, staring out the window pane.

As we walk in the stereotypical halls,
You can feel everyone watching and waiting for you to fall.
Most high schools are made up to be such a horrible place,
Where you have unimaginable problems that you can't even face.

It's the place where you aren't suppose to talk about Jesus or God,
And to you everyone seems like a fraud.
I wish all the negative energy would disappear,
Then maybe, just maybe, there would be a positive atmosphere.

High school is a place of opportunities,
Where you can show everyone just how great you can be.
There are so many memories we're all waiting to make,
In the end, my hope is that we all will learn from our... Mistakes!
