“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.” ~ Mother Teresa
In the aftermath of Friday’s senseless occurrence, it is important to keep the faith in humanity in tragic times, as hard as that may be. There are many people who do good deeds, day after day, which reflect the goodness of people in our country. Each one of us can find opportunities to help our fellow man, in some small way, to make this place a better world.
- During the holidays, give to the person on the street ringing the bell for charity, no matter how big or small your contribution.
- Give Christmas cookies or a thoughtful token to someone who is alone at Christmas.
- Use every opportunity, you can find, to let your child know you believe in them.
- Give your unused grocery coupons to someone who needs them.
- Carry groceries for the elderly or offer a kind word.
- Volunteer at a food shelter or donation center for the needy.
- Say “thank you” to military men and women on the street, veterans and those actively serving.
- Be grateful there are men and women who are willing serve in public office positions, at the local and state level, even if you may not agree with their opinions or decisions.
- Leave your newspaper at the coffee shop, neatly folded, for someone else to read.
- Offer your position in line at the store to someone who looks like they need it.
- Compliment someone on a job well done.
There are small heartfelt things we can do to help each other know there are still people who are warm hearted and care in this world. We can never afford to lose the faith in the human race.
