Change Maker: Justin Lee

I just found this article about a young man named Justin Lee, who at the age of 17 decided to clean up his neighborhood. He mows lawns on vacant homes, removes litter, and plants flowers.  And he does it all on his own.

Lee said one thing that spurred him to act was seeing young children walk through trash and weeds to nearby Ohio Elementary School. “It’s not motivating,” he pointed out. He hopes he encourages others to follow in his footsteps. “One day of doing something is better than two days of thinking about it,” he said.”  – Thank you Mark Ferenchik of The Columbus Dispatch for sharing this story of Justin’s amazing effort.

I love reading about people who just go and take action. He didn’t wait for a team of people to help, he just started working. That initiative is what we need more of from the smart people in the world.
