remember. do better. feel better.

As we once again grieve as a nation for the thousands of Americans lost seven years ago today, I'm reminded of words I heard recently that rang ever so true:

Nothing heals grief like service.

So today, I urge you to conciously do something good for someone else - it'll make both of you feel good. Some ideas to get you going:

Hold a door.
Donate blood.
Send a thank-you note.
Compliment a stranger.
Leave a big tip.
Let a car merge in front of you.
Pay for the drive-thru order of the person behind you.
Make a charitable contribution.
Cancel a meeting (nobody likes them).
Listen to your kids with your full attention.
Call your mom.
Smile. All day. At everybody.
Be the change you wish to see in the world.

So, how will you bless someone today? Please share your great idea.
