My name is Zoe, and I'm a student. Inside the high school, everyone is trying to prepare us for adulthood. I constantly feel the stress to quit being a child and grow up, yet when I look around, I see childhood nastiness all around. People swear and insult others to try to act "cool," while others are bullied because of someone else's insecurities. Meanwhile, everyone is ignoring each other simply trying to stay afloat in the difficult learning setting. I didn't want my life or anyone else's to look like this, which is why I love RAKs.
The pleasant feeling I get when I make someone smile, the sheer knowledge that I have made someone's life a little bit happier, the kindling hope that this stranger or friend will pass on my kindness makes all the effort I put into thinking up and gathering the courage to execute my RAKs more than worth it. I only hope that rest of the world grows to care about and cherish these feelings. After all, if the opposite of love is indifference, then I refuse to ignore the work around me. Instead, I will do my best to make the world a better place. I am extremely glad that there are people in this group with the same goal!
