Random Acts of Kindness at Thanksgiving II

This week do something totally unexpected for a complete stranger.
Treat the driver behind you to coffee on you at Dunkin Donuts…or your favorite drive thru.
At the market: Check the shopping cart of the person behind you. Is there a turkey in the cart? Ask the person if you can treat for their Thanksgiving turkey.
Have a couple of $15 or $25 gift cards in your pocket. At the supermarket, walking down the street, at your lunch spot: If you see a person sweeping the floor or sidewalk or emptying trash or stocking shelves, step up. Wish the person Happy
Thanksgiving. Give them a gift card as a token of your appreciation.
This is kind of the opposite of terrorism. Maybe it’s do-good-ism. Let’s be do-good-ists this week.
Happy Thanksgiving.

Honoring All Those Who Serve

As Veterans’ Day approaches, I am taking a moment to acknowledge not only those who have defended the USA from attack in our military forces, but also Peace Corps volunteers who have taken assignments in remote villages around the world to share technology and other knowledge to improve quality of life; volunteers of all ages and experience who help nonprofits by serving meals at soup kitchens and working in hospitals to broaden service to those recovering from illness and surgery.
Thank you to all who pitch in to help make life better for others in varied roles.
