A though (for myself) at the beginning of the year

On Facebook today I noticed a person I’m connected to mention that he’s still got the post Holiday blues and was wondering aloud how he could defeat them.  I answered that he might find some success by volunteering his time with an organization help the needy, especially children.

I need to look to do this too at some point.  Soon.  Even if it’s for one weekend afternoon  a month.

All too often we encourage young people to do such things…because it will “be good for them”.  I’ve always found that, while that statement is true, is also a cop-out.  It serves as an excuse to pass off charitable work on others who may be more compilable.

I wonder if I’ll cop-out here.  I hope I don’t.
