Week of 07-11 through 07-17-2017

This week’s photo prompt is provided by Grant-Sud. Thank you Grand-Sud for our photo prompt!


Sometimes I need to come up here and just look around.

The world is a mixture of good and bad.  I am just a small part of it but I can give to society in a good way.  I can not solve all the problems, take care of all the needs, but just my contribution to society can go a long way.

I see John, walking to school with the other children and that is something that has changed.  He was a loner and would have nothing to do with anyone.

I remember talking to him one day and I found out he could not read or write, even though he was ten years old.

We became friends and I would help him with his school work and include him in the outdoor activities with the other children.

He became part of us, and he told me one day that just the simple act of reaching out to him as a friend had  a profound impact on his life.
