How one small person can make a very big difference

This is a picture of Ellie, who is in the first grade at the grade school in my neighborhood. When her school decided to collect candy for our soldiers, Ellie organized her entire neighborhood and collected 70 lbs all by herself.

I got the opportunity to meet her and present her with a Soldiers' Angels pin, and a thank you letter and t-shirt from the 10th Combat Support Hospital in Iraq.

What a sweet little girl, and proof that one person, no matter how small, can make a big difference.
