Just Because

Just Because | Health, Fitness | Scoop.it
Cris Dobrosielski's insight:
“Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? 
Thou art more lovely and more temperate: 
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May, 
And summer's lease hath all too short a date: 
Sometimes too hot the eye of heaven shines, 
And too often is his gold complexion dimm'd: 
And every fair from fair sometimes declines, 
By chance or natures changing course untrimm'd; 
By thy eternal summer shall not fade, 
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest; 
Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade, 
When in eternal lines to time thou growest: 
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see, 
So long lives this and this gives life to thee.”

Before last summer, vacation for the Nguyen family meant dad Michael was the only one taking a dip in the pool. He was the only one who could swim.
Cris Dobrosielski's insight:

The world is improved by the actions of brave and commited people who see things that aren't right and put in their time, talent and treasure to make them better.

 

Hats off to the YMCA for having their hand in such important issue. Not surprising. YMCA's, JCC's, Boys n Girl Clubs and others are amazing aspects of cultural fabric. I give a nod to all of em in GTD.

 

Look around you, is there something in your community that you can make a little better? How about we each pick 1, this summer?
