rebelling against low expectations

What practical hard things can young teenagers do?


MAX WRITES: How can a younger teen like me, who’s only 13, make a difference in the world and accomplish hard things? I haven’t even entered high school yet! I just love to hear all these amazing stories about different teens doing hard things, and yet I ask myself, how can I do that?

It seems impossible and I just feel confused and disappointed about myself. I hear all these great ideas about doing wonderful, hard things. But what can I do to change our sad, sad world today? Is praying and hoping I can do hard things eventually all I can do today? I feel like I could and should be making a difference but I don’t know how.
