I’m beginning to recognize the signs. The looks when I open the door for someone, or offer to reach an upper shelf for someone wheelchair or motorized cart bound, or let the person behind me go first in line because they have less to check out. The interesting thing is, the looks aren’t of disgust but of confusion – that look of “Did I really see that, I thought that went the way of the dinosaurs!”
Yes, the signs clearly point to the fact my values are in danger of becoming extinct. That’s sad, but it’s still encouraging. Like an environmental activist goes to bat for the ecosystem challenged gray wolf, or the whooping crane, I am out to save two of today’s socially challenged, endangered species I call ‘values’ and ‘ethics’.
So, I’m asking you – my fellow archaic valued friends – to join me in my fight! It’s simple. For less than zero cents per day, you can keep doing what you’re doing. Keep smiling at the stranger, helping those in need, putting others before yourself. Do it every day. These poor, abused, abandoned values and ethics need YOUR help. Please, don’t turn your back on them. They would never turn their backs on you.
Thank you for your support!
