You don't have to share any of your stories if you don't want to, the other purpose of this thread is to show us things you are concerned about, and to help if we can.
But I encourage you to share anything you feel is wothy of our attention, to help our fellow human beings.
Funny thing is, I never thought that was the intention. Perhaps it was my intense "training" as a child that just prevents me from talking too much about those kinds of things.
I have yet to join together with a large group to accomplish some kind of benefit for a group, like soup kitchens, food banks, etc. I find myself drawn to helping families and individuals with very real, very particular needs, and finding out what I can do to help them. sometimes, I feel like "It's only money." If my extra dollars can make a difference to someone with a large medical bill, or utility bill, etc. Then I'm willing to part with it.
