This I Believe Rhode Island
Tue March 29, 2011
WRNI – In a perfect world, all of us would be sensitive to the suffering of others, and would do what we can to ease their path in life. For some of us, this would take the form of large-scale social change that addresses the nagging problems of poverty, oppression, and injustice in our world. For others, it means providing nurture and succor to one person at a time. Both are essential, of course. And as 13-year-old Nick Lowinger tells us, these efforts can begin, literally, with a single step.
Nick Lowinger is a 7th-grade student at the Wheeler School in Providence. Nick loves love reading, writing, and playing the bass for Wheeler's Middle School Jazz Ensemble. In 2010 Nick received a writing award from the Rhode Island Council of Teachers of English and started the Gotta Have Sole Foundation.
