Pay it forward

I suppose watching the movie "Pay It Forward" inspired me a little. I won't spoil the movie for you and I suggest you watch it (Kevin Spacey, woo!) The idea, however, is simple and beautiful. You find three people and do something good for them, something that they can't do for themselves. It doesn't even have to be someone you know. It doesn't have to be huge. It doesn't have to be anything in particular other than giving something that the person can't get or do themselves. The idea, then, is that you tell them not to pay you back, but to pay it forward... to find three of their own people.

I know that it's silly and it won't work and that some people will ultimately take advantage of you. Who cares? The fact is, everyone can change the world, even if only a little bit.
