Today’s giving: Engineering for the 4th graders again. Every one of them got their cars moving, and every one of them was engaged as the excitement built!
This morning, a woman pulled over to let me pass on a narrow part of the road. Seeing she had a headlight out, I rolled down the window and told her.
It was just a simple courtesy, but important.
We notice a burnt-out headlight when we’re playing paddidle, but do we think of it as a problem we can help fix?
We see trash alongside the road and shake our heads, but do we think of it as a problem we can help fix?
We complain about our schools not teaching our kids enough, but do we think of it as a problem we can help fix?
We moan about our government spending our money unwisely, but do we think of it as a problem we can help fix?
If you can’t recognize that a problem exists; If you fail to see that aid is needed; If you can’t visualize a better way; then you won’t believe that you can solve it and you won’t even try.
Observation is critical to giving your time.
