There's a movement going on to turn 9/11 into a day of service in remembrance of those who died. This year over 250,000 people have posted their pledge to do a good deed today here:
I'll be making a donation at Women in Need, our local women's shelter organization.
I've been thinking about volunteering lately. In our busy, busy world it's too easy to get isolated from others. I want something my son can be involved in . I think he needs the experience of helping others. I want him to grow up with the idea that helping others is a good thing. I want him to be involved in his community. We've been giving some furniture and things to My Sister's Closet, which is the Women in Need Store, and he's been going through his things to add to that, but I'm thinking of doing more than that. I'm not sure what we are going to do yet. I just know that when we help our neighbors, even those who live far away, we help everyone.
