Pay It Forward Again and Again
Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?' Martin Luther King, Jr.
It's so easy to make everything about yourself and ignore everybody else.You see tragedy on the television, you turn the channel to E! You hear a friend complaining about some problems that they are having and you tune them out thinking about your to do list. These terrible habits are the key to living an empty meaningless life.
Martin Luther King challenges you to answer the question what you are doing for others. Not much most people will say.This is why there is sadness and the ultimate breakdown of our communities. It's not about you, it about the community. It's about those who cannot help themselves that you can help.
