Carrie Underwood wrote a song that she sings called "Change". The lyrics of the chorus go something like this..."Just a fool, just a fool to believe you can change the world...don't listen to them when they say, you're just a fool, just a fool to believe you can change the world".
I let my son Scott listen to the song and after he heard it he looked at me and said these words, "Yup, that is a Sam Welten kind of song"...I took that as a compliment. Call me a fool if you like, but I believe that we can raise a "nation" of people that can see our world changed. We can do far more together than we could ever do alone. While children from the street are being blessed here in Haiti....children, adults and the elderly in Kyrgyzstan are getting the "mother" of all Christmas's...and the list goes on. Yes...call me a fool....call John Wright a fool...call the nation of "everyday philanthropists" we are building all fools if you like. In every place we do these types of things we partner with folks that are there long term...we are not "one shot" wonders....we are just fools that believe we can change the world.
Thank you Brianne....Scott & Heather Helps....Sarah Helps...Scott Welten....Dan Helps.
Fools....everyone of you!
