If Everyone Cared
Singing, "Amen I, I'm alive"
As I'm sitting alone on Christmas Eve, by choice, escaping the season to be greedy I'm thinking how little I've contributed to the world this year. I watch the news, outraged. "Why doesn't someone do something!" I want to yell - as I sit in my comfy chair eating popcorn and doing nothing to help feed someone who's hungry, or warm someone who's cold, or visit someone who's lonely...
My excuse used to be that as a single mom I had no time and no money. That one is no longer valid, so what is my excuse now?
When next I visit the grocery store, I can spend 5 more dollars and donate to the food pantry. It's not much, but it's a start.
I should find a place to volunteer. Where? I'm not sure...
