The warm feelings generated from the holiday season at the end of the year carry us into the new year with a fresh perspective. It gives all of us a chance to assess what we have accomplished over the last 12 months, and make adjustments for a new beginning.
As the wind whistles through the trees in November, nudging the leaves to take flight, we are reminded of things that change, making way for new experiences. November’s theme is “Reach for the Stars” because as the end of the year approaches, many of us are motivated to sprint to the finish line to achieve our goals.
There are great examples out there where youth have done some fabulous things. You’ll see examples of this in our Amazing Kid of the Month and the Amazing Kids Interview columns. Sometimes youth can be inspired by stories of making a difference written by other kids. This month’s theme is “Make a Difference” and you’ll see this in many of the stories featured this month.
