Your mission, if you choose to accept it: Smile. It’s contagious. You may just make someone’s day. Be kind. Be safe. Be appropriate. Now go!
We have created such a culture of self-reliance and self preservation for the next generation, that we can’t possibly rely on others. That’s what we’re taught and passing on to the future. So of course I’m super frustrated when I hear stories like the recent local problem of the homelessness on KUOW, and how one […]
