Send a care package for the mind.

Regardless of how you feel about the current war, US soldiers can use your support. Books for Soldiers is "a soldier support site that ships books, DVDs and supplies to deployed soldiers and soldiers in VA hospitals, via our large volunteer network." On

* a servicewomen or man can request specific books through Books for Soldiers.
* the public can send books to a soldier, sailor, airman, or marine.
* the public can volunteer, donate money or donate other needed items.

Perhaps you have relatives who've been called to active duty (I do). Or friends. Or coworkers. Or neighbors. Consider sending those you know (or those you don't) a care package for the mind.

Hi : )
I just wanted to thank you for your blog. I believe we can all work together to make this world a better place. We deserve it and the people after us deserve it too. I often come across people who say they cannot do anything since they do not have enough power to change what they do not like and i totally disagree with that and believe that if you want to change the world for the better, you have to change yourself for the better.
If you want peace in the world, then start with peace for yourself, family, community etc.
Thank you, and keep up the good work and may God bless you!

Thanks DeVyne! I'm so glad you like 'So what can I do.' I agree with what you wrote, particularly when you noted that "you have to change yourself for the better." Truer words were never spoken. I like Mahatma Ghadi's quote, "Be the change you want to see in the world." I firmly believe that when we all act in accordance with our own values, all of humanity will benefit. I hope that 'So what can I do' shows folks some small steps we each can take to make that happen.

Please stop by again soon, DeVyne, and spread the word! Peace and blessings to you and yours.
