"Someone once told me that time was a predator that stalked us all our lives. I rather believe that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey and reminds us to cherish every moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we've lived."
-Jean Luc Picard

But seriously...

My regular readers are well aware that I try to make this a fun place to visit and hopefully bring a smile to your face. The truth is that I know some of you are really struggling right now. When times are bad, we all need a distraction from our troubles and hopefully I've helped just a bit with that.

I'd like to ask those of you who are doing okay right now to think about those in your community and our nation who are having a tough time right now. The food banks in some cities and towns are not able to meet the demand as the numbers of the unemployed continue to rise. I'm asking you to make a donation to your local food bank or to Feeding America. I know that some of you make charitable donations every single month and I know whatever charities you are supporting are eternally grateful for regular donors such as yourself. Can you possibly do a little more? Even donating five dollars could help a hungry child, adult, or senior to have a hot meal today. I just made a donation, anybody else want to join me?

I just read this and I do want to join you. One thing that I have really begun to fell important in my project is participating in my community and the world. It is so easy in modern times to get lost behind a computer screen in the bubble of your home, but that was not always the case. I hope the one good thing that comes from this economic downturn is the understanding of others and the desire to help.
