We all TALK about a lot of things, but how many of us actually DO something? Most people shy away from attempting to do anything because they don't see the significance in their voice, or their actions, to make a difference.
but for my birthday I want my family, and my friends, and my friends friends to find their humanity and make somebodies day, do something good for somebody else, and not for your own benefit.

you just gave your wifes facebook page out to how many strangers???
are you NUTZ?
is this even your wife for real..? How do we know you're not playing some cruel practical joke?
I hardly think your wife wants her facebook wall full of messages from 1000's of strangers around the world..
I'd flip on my husband if he ever did that.. but then I have never had facebook..so no worries.
something seems creepy and odd about this thread.. just sayingedit on 27-9-2011 by gabby2011 because: (no reason given)

I'm tired of reading about people killing their babies, killing their friends or family, and killing themselves because they had the audacity to be different. In a country where we're supposed to be free to be who we are, our humanity for the general human race is dissolving and it's completely disgusting. We all talk about how awful it is to hear about kids who have to go days without eating because their parents can't find work. We talk about how awful it is to hear about someone hurting a child, or killing themselves because they can't cope with the bull# they're forced to deal with on a daily basis. We all TALK about a lot of things, but how many of us actually DO something? Most people shy away from attempting to do anything because they don't see the significance in their voice, or their actions, to make a difference. Others shy away from doing it because "they have their own problems to deal with". Either way, whether you're too busy or too scared, I am asking you to step out of your comfort zone and do something.
I realize it's not for a little over a month, but for my birthday I want my family, and my friends, and my friends friends to find their humanity and make somebodies day, do something good for somebody else, and not for your own benefit. I don't want your cards, or your money, or your gifts. Instead I want you to buy an outfit or a pair of shoes, and donate it. Give a homeless man a meal, donate a can of green beans to a soup kitchen, let someone pull out infront of you in traffic, tell somebody they look nice today even if it looks like they were run over a mack truck. I don't care if you pick a dead flower and give it to someone you don't even know, just make SOMEBODIES day. Everybody has their own trials and tribulations daily but just for one day, I'm asking you to show someone else the appreciation and respect that we seem to have lost for eachother somewhere along the line.
I know a lot of you are probably going to laugh at me and think this is the dumbest thing, but put yourself in someone elses shoes for once. Those posts you guys put up about the fat girl overdosing on diet pills, and that kid you called a fag contemplating suicide, they're ALL TRUE. Things like that happen everywhere, everyday, and posting those chain things are nice, but they don't do anything. If you're really against it, and you're really all about things changing, then DO SOMETHING, even if it is just for that crazy Ashlee girl's birthday.
fortunately I have a wife that brings me back to my better years and puts a smile on my face, making my world better in the process.
I used to be out and about daily and in contact with people of all types, and it was easy for me to see the good side of everyone, but these days I am at home more often than not watching the children while my wife works, and the little time I do get out of the house, all I see are people that NEED to drive like jerks because they need to get to their destination more than you do, or people that are just oblivious to their surroundings.
