Thought of the day
” Do Something About It
You can volunteer.
You’re surrounded by great causes in need of people.
And here’s why you should get involved: your life is racing by, and if you aren’t careful, one day you’ll look up and your one shot at life will have passed you by.
Some people don’t concern themselves with such thoughts.
They grind through their days without lifting their eyes to look.
They live and die and never ask why.
If you want your life to matter, live it in a way that the world would be glad you did.”
