So today I decided to revisit the news. Osama Bin Ladin is dead - and the news following that moment predominately discussed 9/11, the take down, and AlQaeda. Before that moment, the news predominately discussed the royal wedding of Price William & Kate Middleton. And even before that it was about the 300+ dead & dying in the US south due to horrific and massive tornadoes. And still before that was the destruction in Japan after the record breaking earthquake. And shadowed by all of this are those left swimming out of their homes in these massive floods.
I want to take some time off between jobs. I wanted to do this to give me some time to myself. To help me settle into my new home. To help me adjust. And to spend a bit more time with family before I go. But maybe... maybe I can spare, even 4 days to travel to our neighbors and help. Even if it's just organizing clean sheets, distributing water, or dolling out food. It could be in a warehouse somewhere, organizing donated garments & supplies. It would be help. I think I owe humanity at least 4 days of unselfishness.
