Day of Compassion

I heard about this movement on the radio today. There is a move to make September 11th (I hate the 9/11 designation) a day of compassion and service to one's fellow man. I can only say "Oh YEAH!" and applaud.

We need to remember that the world we want is about compassion in the face of hate, doing for one's fellow man as opposed to returning like for like. A friend of mine has recently started up the "Peace for Peace" movement at UC Santa Cruz, and I greatly admire him for it. That's the message. Anti is conflict. No, go to the other solution.

Here's the web site: www.mygooddeed.org
On it, you can find opportunities for volunteerism, ways to make pledges, and other ways you can make a difference in making the world a better place.
