"If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one." Mother Teresa
Elizabeth Nieves, the founder of Activist Rain selected that quote as part of her group's description. It is about "one thing... and one thing only: recognizing that ONE PERSON can change the world one simple act of kindness of and love at a time."
Jason Crouch introduced me to Elizabeth's blog. Paddy Pizappi invited me to join her group. After reading the posts published there I found myself wondering what act of kindness I was going to perform today. When you are being spontaneous it is so easy to be kind, but when you are determined to change something for the good of someone else, being deliberate and calculating in your actions to maximize your effectiveness is a whole other ballgame...
Today's Flushing turtle run is dedicated to Jason, Paddy and Elizabeth because they have changed how so many of us feel about blogging in the Rain...
In "Blog Action Day 2008 - POVERTY (Do you have the COURAGE to look at this photograph?" Elizabeth speaks of Kevin Carter and the choices he made that may startle you. In "It's Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Tell Ten Friends and so on..." Paddy encourages us all to join in the fight against cancer. In "ActiveRain is Amazing - Local Networking Pays Dividends," Jason details how placing relationships first resulted in a wonderful business referral from Russell Lewis. BTW, if you haven't read Russell's blog I highly recommend you do so as well as subscribe to the other members featured. You will not be disappointed. I certainly enjoy them on a daily basis.
Here's a little eye candy from my turtle run. Stay tuned for a tour of Brooklyn Brownstones and Townhouses next.
