Pass It On®

I think that many people are frustrated with the fast pace of today. The lacking value most can't pinpoint is purpose. Is what I am spending my time with useful, meaningful? The answer is individual. Facebook, money, work, friends you chose, etc. Is there purpose in this? Good and bad, there is always purpose.
Megan, North Carolina

"The purpose of life is to have a life of purpose."
Ayden Smith, Wahpeton, North Dakota

Do good, and you will feel good! I promise!
Janez Hacin, Geneva

Purpose points us in the right direction.
Bruce Willingham, Warner Robins, Ga

Purpose is why we are here. To make a difference in the lives of others.
Bruce Willingham, Warner Robins Ga

purpose is a drive that makes us move forward.
