Well, I'm not going to do that. I'll call him when I arrive at my "undisclosed location." When I had recently wrote in "Once upon a Time" that we should tie a string around our wrists to remember the unemployed and the foreclosed upon and those pushed out of our society. I received very kind and humbling responses and the affairs of this week have made me aware of how much we are already tied together.
Even in our own troubles and cares we still have time to help each other. We still have gifts and talents to offer each other. Our kindness is unfettered, our society disappoints us, our politicians disappoint us, our government fails us but our people redeem us. If we could just get these people elected into office we could change things for the better. These people would care more about disappointing us than about disappointing their children on their trip to Disney World.
I learned something else, if you want to tie a string around your wrist, it is a lot easier to do if you have someone to help you do it. It makes the symbolism even more appropriate because it is a very simple task, yet you need an extra hand to do it.
