Have you ever complained about the tap water at home or in your school water fountains? How about all the trash along the road or in a local creek or park? Did you do anything about your complaints? How did you feel when you saw the images of 9/11, or heard about the 2004 tsunami or the AIDS epidemic in Africa? What do you think when you encounter a person with a disability at school, or a senior citizen struggling with a heavy grocery-store door, or a homeless person in your path? The rural teens highlighted in this book not only noticed a need, but they found a way to change what they saw. They may have grown up in the country-but they reached out and touched the world!
