There's a sandwich shop by my office that gives you points for every visit you make there. At 300 points, I get to concoct a sandwich of my own creation and for 30 days, proceeds from sales of the sandwich benefit my charity of choice. I'm a third of the way there! :-)
You ever just get so sick of the news -- all the shootings and mass killings and senseless violence and be like, "That's it! I'm buying an island and starting my own country where we can all just meditate and pick fruit and sing songs and read books and play in the sunshine all day and everyone helps their neighbors and no one is even slightly interested in hurting one another?" Maybe it's just me. I have an active imagination.
Am I mad about the Zimmerman verdict? Yes! Am I going to riot? No. What am I going to do? I'm going to made sure I vote the right people in, write to my representatives if I feel a law is unfair and raise my family to always do the right thing. Can I bring Trayvon back? No. Can I make a difference going forward? Yes.
