What Are You Doing?

It is impossible to hear and watch what's been going on across the United States and not feel like you want to help. The tragic deaths of so many innocent and brave people tear a hole in your heart.

Everyday a new story comes out about how young and old, rich and poor, black, white and brown, are banding together to make it through. What are you doing?

I can ask that to you, because I had to ask myself. Even before the day we'll never forget, September 11th, I used to wonder how and if I was making this world better? Sometimes, on the streets of New York City, I would smile at someone, say hello or hold a door open and be amazed at the gratitude for an action that is really simple and painless.

What are you doing?

Who have you helped today? Whose life have you made brighter by being nicer or more thoughtful? Smiles are free. Hugs are too. Not gossiping and keeping things going - no charge.

Cuz the lesson here is, yes, we are individuals. But together we can make a difference. It doesn't matter where you live, how much money you have or who you know. You alone have the power to make someone's life better.

Take a minute. Think of all of the things that you can do for free - right now - that would make someone you know happy. Run an errand, walk the dog, take out the trash... It's easy.

What are you doing?

Don't let the gutless acts of a few stop you from living the rest of your life with goodness. It is your responsibility to live your life with meaning and purpose. I don't expect you to have all of the answers but I know that you all know right from wrong.

Hatred and killing are wrong. Gossiping and being mean and petty are wrong.

This is not a time to be afraid. This is a time to keep reaching out and supporting each other, finding strength in your faith and your families. Look for the good in your thoughts, words and actions. It will help us all in more ways than you know.

    the struggle is real try out some different kinds of eyeliner, too. I'm terrible at gel, personally. but liquid is easier I find. Practice is key, although it can get super frustrating

    It's best to just ask. No one or no thing can really tell you for sure unless you're upfront about it.

    A random guy did that to me once too. Turned out he had a huge crush on me and we ended up being close friends. Just ask around to find out who he is.

    Has she talked about wanting anything in particular, or do you remember her looking at something before? Try to remember something she wanted and look for that or something similar.
