This I Believe Assignment...


2.) Wayne Coyne

3.) Creating Our Own Happiness

4.) I believe we have the power to create our own happiness.

5.) #1: "But then I saw their faces. Yes, they were huddling, but they were also laughing. They looked to be sharing a good joke, and suddenly, instead of pitying them, I envied them. I thought, 'Huh, what's so funny?' They didn't notice the wind. They weren't worried about their clothes. They weren't looking at my car thinking, 'I wish I had that.' "

#2: "...I realized I had assumed this couple needed my pity, but they didn't. I assumed things were all bad for them, but they weren't. And I understood we all have the power to make moments of happiness happen."

6.) "I believe this is something all of us can do: Try to be happy within the context of the life we are actually living."
