Life is better when we make a new friend!
Today's news makes us all think about doing more for our neighbors and community. You don't have to go across the country to find great need, it is right here in your neighborhood. But how do you get started in reaching out and helping those around you who are in need? How do you break the ice with someone you hardly know? What can you do that really matters?
HERE IS THE ANSWER
Spend time with a neighbor who is alone, blind, socially isolated. When older people become less active n their community they can also become forgoten. Visit a senior, take one to lunch or just listen to their stories of the good ole days before computers, cell phones and pdas. There is a neighbor close to you who can't see and needs some help with sorting their mail, getting to the store, bank or hair dresser.
