Making a Difference: The Measure of the Man

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us


"The future is not in my hands. There are, though, things I hope for.

World peace
Equality
Tolerance

"I believe God has a direction for me. My job is to give back and to be a decent human being no matter how many people cheer my name."

"I want my tombstone to say that I have made a difference somewhere"

~ Clay Aiken ~

Service has always been important to Clay's life. His success in the music industry has not changed that. Wanting to make a difference in the world should be commended. Clay started a foundation for inclusion programs for children with disabilites. He has given his name, time, and money to many worthy causes. One difference which cannot easily be measured is that he has brought awareness to organizations, causes, and problems about which people (his fans) would not normally have given much thought. Clay need not worry about making a difference because he already has, in many ways.





A picture might be worth a thousand words, but sometimes no words are needed at all.
