I Wonder (Part 2)

“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 …

Symbol question

… 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?

I wonder.

Yesterday’s gift of time … Put a dollar in a Salvation Army red bucket instead of a Powerball machine.

Note – First “I Wonder” post here.

About Eric Winger

Our perception of time is key to how we use our time. The most fundamental way to change that perception is to give our time. This opens us up to new opportunities and ideas from which we can build to really make a difference. ... Yes, we *do* have time to make a difference!
