Today, do something good.

LeRoy biking through the leaves.Today is a bittersweet day. One of the volunteers I work with just passed away suddenly, and I am still taking time to process and digest this. Today is his memorial service, and I am unable to attend. I don’t think he would appreciate my presence there, anyway…he would probably roll his eyes and poke fun at me for sobbing my eyes and heart out.

He isn’t one to wallow, but he wants you to get out there and do something. Make a difference in this world with whatever resources you have. As a man experiencing homelessness, he may not have a lot of worldly possessions. But let me tell you, you can do a lot and change so much, even if it looks like you have nothing. He had the world, and captivated us with his intelligence, compassion, and entrepreneurial spirit – all in the name of helping others. Today, I ask you to please pay it forward, do something. I think the world would be a better place because of it.
