You don't have to send 12 sons off to the Revolutionary War to make an impact on your town. All you need to do is stop by and pick up a neighbor when you are on your way to the store, check in from time to time to make sure there is not mail piling up and generally be a good friend to a neighbor. It's easy! Just about 2 hours every other week is all he needs.
