Thank you???

This article/editorial from the New York Times is really interesting. I never really considered road courtesy, probably because I don't drive... But it got me thinking about how many nice things get overlooked every day. I'm going to really start thinking about who holds the door for me, who says "Bless you", "Thank you", or "You're welcome", or who compliments/encourages me. I really will be more thankful for all of the people go out of their ways to make my day a little better.

Also, the swine flu outbreak is really interesting to me. I know it's kind of old news, but it's still somewhat relevant. There have been a few cases in the area, and schools have closed, reopened, sent home letters, etc....basically, gone crazy. Every year it's a new epidemic: swine flu, bird flu, MRSA.... The media will continue to frighten the public.

Anyways, I'm doing a candy sale fundraiser at school and so many people have been so helpful to me! It's really empowering.

Well, ttyl!
