Sarah’s Law law allows parents to know if a paedophile is in the area. Shy Keenan and Sara Payne won Women of the Year in 2008 for their campaigning to get it onto the statute books, after Sarah Payne, Sara’s 8 year old daughter, was abducted and killed in 2000 by a known paedophile.
In her acceptance speech Sara said. “Do one thing every day that makes you proud and little by little we can change the world”. It’s a great maxim to live by. Do one thing every day to make you proud. How many of us live lives of mediocrity? We tread water through life, just getting by. We do the minimum required to get through. We cut corners and do a half baked job.
Does living like that every day make you proud? I don’t think so. How different would things be if you did them in a way that made you proud? What would that be like? How much better would your life be? How much better would life be for your family and friends? How much happier would you be?
What did you do today that made you proud? What will life be like tomorrow with that feeling? What will you do tomorrow that will make you proud?
