“I keep six honest serving-men,
They taught me all I knew;
Their names are What and Why and When
And How and Where and Who.”
— Rudyard Kipling
I wonder …
… what would happen if everyone who bought a Powerball ticket this week had instead put their dollar in a Salvation Army red bucket?
… what it tells us about listening that human ears are always open, but human mouths can be closed?
… what the point of self-improvement is if you only improve yourself?
… what could change if restaurant bills had a food bank donation line below the gratuity line?
… what would happen if obituaries for common people were written as elegantly as obituaries for celebrities?
… why compassion is considered by some to be a sign of weakness?
… why we expect others to change without changing ourself?
… why it seems that opinions are formed more easily than informed opinions?
… why government money for the poor is called an entitlement, and government money for the rich is called tax relief?
… why the word ‘listen’ is an anagram of ‘silent’?
… what would happen if there was a Bill of Responsibilities to go along with our Bill of Rights?
Yesterday’s gift of time … Put a dollar in a Salvation Army red bucket instead of a Powerball machine.
