    For the act of kindness you wanted us to do I reached out to my cousin. Her dad (my uncle) passed due to COVID-19 issues. She has been much different from her normal self. To make it worse they couldn’t have a big funeral because of COVID. We recently went to a gathering just to help them morn there loss , tho he died months ago. But seeing today as I’m writing this it’s Easter. I just said Happy Easter and what there family was doing . She lives in Iowa and I live in Ohio so we don’t see each other all that often. It was a small thing but I’m sure it made her day a little better. I’m sure this will get buried but I thought it was worth commenting.

    I felt 'discomfort' when I discovered your charity partner selling $5 prayer beads made from endangered hardwood for $95 claiming the bracelets have healing properties. Don't get me wrong, It's a great cause and if it is within your means to donate, I recommend getting a 'Sandalwood' bracelet, as that really is a sustainable and 'holy' material rather than 'Rosewood'.

    Altruism is not same as donation. Altruism is offering the slef. Whenever you think you are too important.. You must think 'I won't do this, I am not xyz...' Do one thing. Go and celebrate with xyz the way they do. Be like them for few hours. Be of everybody's and of none. Protects your individuality but become a part of everything.

I then went on to go back and thank all the people that helped me acheive the career of my dream. All but one. Billy Joel. His song ''Second wind'' actually took away all my suicidal thoughts that I had as a teen. Because of that, I live, now I enjoy a good life, with kids, a loving wife and a job that fulfills me. So I would want to have dinner with Billy Joel, because he saved my life.
