I try not to set goals for myself, mostly so I won't let myself down by not following through but I am going to set one here, today, and vow to do my best to keep it. I have often thought that I should keep a journal but finding myself wondering if, years later, I would even be interested in what was in it. Blogging has crossed my mind several times but I have never taken the initiative for many of the same reasons. So I am taking a different approach this time. I am going to focus, for an entire year, on what a small group of people, in a small land-locked town, can do to change the lives of the less fortunate around them. Although I'm sure pieces of my personal life will make their way in here, my opinions, my joys and sorrows, rewards and troubles, and other things that will sometimes be totally irrelevant, I promise not to get to carried away and simply show everyone that there is a great deal of good in the world still and a great deal of good people. I am not going to tell you who I am or where I am and I will use fictitious names...it is the stories that will be important and nothing more.
