Another day where reflection and service are expected

Found this post from 2009 in my drafts, six years later it is still relevant with the removal of one phrase referencing the upcoming Inauguration.

For many people giving back to the community is something they do regularly...supporting schools, students, community members, educators, neighbors, by random acts of kindness or deliberate discussions.

In celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day many people are doing a variety of things. Visit the government website and share what you are doing in support of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, find a place to serve, search all things #MLKDay, and learn more about MLK Day.

So while you may be basking in celebration for the Super Bowl contenders, concerned about homework, job searches, where the next paycheck is coming from, ailing family members...take a moment and doing something nice.

If you are a regular practitioner of random acts of kindness or volunteer, you understand the healing and calming powers of what giving back means. You will be surprised at how healing and calming.

Take what you can in the spirit of MLK Day and use it to prepare for International Random Acts of Kindness Week February 9-15, 2015. 

How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world. ~Anne Frank
