“I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.” ― Edward Everett Hale


Most people want to know their lives are making a difference. In our families, the companies we work for, our communities—wherever we gather. It’s part of being human.


In fact, there is even a day dedicated to making a difference. Not surprisingly, it’s called Make a Difference Day, and it is celebrated annually on the fourth Saturday in October. It’s a time where people as individuals or within an organization partner to find ways to help others and make things better in the world. It has now become the largest national day of community service.


There are so many ways to be part of this movement. Volunteering for an organization in your community. Offering your talents help others.  Donating to a charity that is meaningful to you. Mentoring someone to help them develop new skills. Or just saying some words of encouragement to someone who needs it.  Even the simplest gestures can have incredible impacts.


One way we can make a difference in the lives of our loved ones is to make sure they are protected as best as we can. Things like life insurance, savings, a will, and taking care of funeral plans ahead of time are all things we can do individually that will make a big difference in the lives of those who are so important to us.
