We wrote this to empower people, to help them realize that even though each of us is only 1 person, we can each make a big difference in making the world a better place.

We are more effective at helping others than we often think we are. Miracles can happen when we have a better understanding of how much we can help others, often in simple, little ways.

It doesn't have to be a page in history.

It doesn't have to bring you fame in any way.
A simple act will do -
A special gift from you -
That shines a little light on someone's day and makes

REFRAIN: A better world for you,
A better world for me.
The journey starts within our hearts.
Each of us can make a better world.

A solitary spark can chase away the dark.
A single drop of rain helps the river run.
It doesn't take that much -
A smile, a word, a touch -
And suddenly a miracle's begun, and it's


Keep believing if you dare.
You might find a hero there and make


Each of us can make a better
Place to build our dreams together.
Each of us can make a better world.
