Weekly Photo Challenge: Humanity

(16 photos in gallery)

This week’s Photo Challenge theme of Humanity, interpreted to mean selflessly caring for others, is one dear to the hearts of most of us, and yet truly acted upon by just some. And by those in varying degrees. While many go about their lives living for themselves, simply passing through each day, others spend those same days in activism/volunteerism, working to improve the lives of others. Perhaps they reap certain personal rewards for their toil, such as a gay man working to legalize marriage equality, that’s not the main reason they do it. Those activists/volunteers I’m personally acquainted with do it just because. They don’t see any other way around it. It’s a part of their being. My son is just such a person, has always been. He spends nearly as many hours on activism/volunteerism as he does in his private career. His evenings and weekends are booked with one event or the other, phone calls, meetings, conferences, all with the goal of improving the lives of his fellow citizens. He works tirelessly, although he’s often tired. He’s not alone, though. There are many other generous individuals out there. To that end, this post is dedicated to those who choose to serve others, without compensation, from the goodness of their hearts. Bless them. ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
