Sidewalk Smiles

If these sidewalks could talk

One of my Global Youth Service Day projects was spreading positivity by writing encouraging words. Since we can still go out and walk, my host sister helped me decorate the sidewalk.

We made a fun route for people walking and wrote messages to help anyone walking by. They enjoyed our fun route, smiled, laughed, thanked us, and told us that it really helped. I am so glad I got to make someone’s day better! Doing this made them happy, and it made me happy.
