its for humanity

these homes i have help to build over the last 4 years
were for humanity
we all should be doing things
for humanity

it should be in our dna
all our kids should be doing it
i have worked with a lot of kids over the last 4 years
at habitat for humanity
their lives are better off for having volunteered
as are the new home owners

you cant buy that feeling you get when you help others
it cant be gotten off the internet or off social media

when i listen to all the election stuff i get tired of it
i just want them to tell me
what they are going to do
for humanity

to make this world better for all of us
especially those who are less privileged than
most of us
for one reason or another

i think each of us should look deep inside
say to ourselves
are we doing something thats good
for humanity

are you or we too wrapped up in our day to day lives
to not be involved in doing something
for humanity

now pretirement
i was too wrapped up in my work and day to day life
i was not doing anything really
for humanity

since i retired
some of my volunteer efforts are geared towards doing these things
for humanity
mine is meals for wheels and habitat for humanity
maybe to a lesser degree my involvement in the
alzheimers movement
organic gardening

i do regret not doing more in my first 60 years
for humanity

i know my life would have been richer
others lives would have been better
had i given with my time and money all those years

this folks
may be a partial solution to some of our problems
you will feel better for what you give
they will be better off for what you did

both of you will be richer for you efforts

take the time now
to help others
get involved
help a neighbor
help a friend
help those in need
the government cant fix everything

humanity will be better off for you having done it
