Community Service

A few years ago, people decided the best way to honor Dr. Martin Luther King was do celebrate his holiday with a day of service. I say this is a great start but why stop at one day? Its like Christmas. Why just have one day to be nice to our fellow man? We should be nice to our fellow man every day.

Perhaps the best way to start would be to bring back common courtesy. Start saying "please" and "thank you". Hold doors open for people. Smile.

Find a way to volunteer that you enjoy and commit time every month to help your fellow man.

We have a responsibility to leave this world a better place than we found it.

Silly, who has time to volunteer. After the knitting group that I do on a volunteer basis across the street at the Lutheran Care Center I am worn out! Those old women run circles around me. oh, I guess that is volunteering!
