Good people. That's what makes Track worth running.

Because Track attracts good people. I'm not saying other sports don't attract good people, I'm just saying that track does it as well.

And good people make me happy. They're just so good.

But what makes a good person? What changes a normal guy in my eyes to a great guy in my eyes?

I think it's kindness to those that have absolutely nothing to offer him or her. They don't have to say anything nice, they don't have to smile at the strangers. But they do. Not because they're going to get anything out of it, but because it's the right thing to do.

What's the point of it all? Good people make the world a better place to live. You want to save the world? Start by making yourself a better person. Make yourself a better person by being kind when you don't have to be. Be nice to your siblings, be nice to your parents. Be nice to your teachers and the Mexicans and the people that aren't as smart as you are. Be nice to me, be nice to Kyle.

Not because I said so, but because you know it's the right thing to do.
