asks himself, "Did I justify my existence on this planet?Have I accomplished something to change people's lives?Schmeer is currently working to make an impact on the world with his "Global Pledge of Allegiance."

visited the class and presented them with a framed photograph of the Earth as it appears from space."There are no lines there," he
says."I really like your idea for the pledge for the whole world.And it is short and simple and you can understand all the words.Maybe sometime there will be a pledge to the world and people will thank you."
