"What have you done today to help your neighbor?"
Back in the 1930's, during the last great depression, America was joined together in one common bond: despair!
Joined together in foreclosure & loss; unemployment & hunger; homelessness and hopelessness!
And today, America is hurting! Your neighbor is hurting!
So NOW is the time for Americans to once again unite! To join together in helping each other - before it is too late! To unite together in reaching out to each other! To join together in hope vs. hopelessness; to join together in giving vs. loss!
"So...What have you done today to help your neighbor?"
- Maybe he just lost his job?
You help find him another one!
- Maybe his home is about to go into foreclosure?
You help him so it doesn't!
- Maybe he is hungry?
You feed him!
- Maybe he needs a word of encouragement?
You give it to him!
- Maybe he needs his car fixed?
You make sure it does get fixed!
- Maybe he needs a helping hand until he lands on his feet?
You lend him yours!
- Maybe he needs a ride to work?
You make sure he gets there and back!
- Maybe he needs a letter of hope?
You make sure he receives many!
- Maybe he needs only...a smile?
Then give him yours!
*I Want You to volunteer, to donate, to sacrifice something for your neighbor. I Want You to help your
neighbor so he can help his neighbor.
"People helping people!"
"Americans helping Americans!"
*I Want You to be with me on this campaign of good will, as I was...
...with Washington at Valley Forge; with Lincoln at Gettysburg; with MacArthur on the beaches of
Normandy; with Neil Armstrong on the moon;with those brave souls on the space shuttle Challenger;
and the firefighters on 9/11...
