Sometimes you can’t help but be nosy. The couple in front of me in line at the grocery store today were of the average middle-aged type, if a little frumpy and persnickety. When they discovered that the store was offering a matching donation to the Red Cross for hurricane relief, they discussed the situation for a minute, then decided to donate
one thousand dollars,
and walked out with their half-bag of groceries.
I just stood there and tried not to cry. Awash in the knowledge that there are some people who are trying to do some good in this world, and that there is more to life than what we see on CNN.
