Facebook is a pretty cool tool. It has connected me with friends from 3000 miles away in my home state. I'm a Philadelphia girl, well, suburbs anyway. I lived there most of my life, but I haven't been back in a long time.
Today a friend who I have known since I was about 4, friended me. His name to me is Danny, even if he goes by Dan now. I went to check out his profile and see what was happening in his world. What I found was a big surprise.
You see, I find it so bizarre to find that my childhood friends have become grown-ups. Of course they were adults when I left at age 30, but somehow now they/we have become grown-ups. Weird!
This one friend, in particular, is really stepping up. His home town of Yardley had been repeatedly hit with floods. Within an 18 month period the town was hit 3 times.
His personal experience has been the inspiration for Each One for US All, a non-profit corporation in the making. The logo and website are being designed. The paper work to form the non-profit are in the works. From what I understand, this is a daunting task.
I encourage you to go and read Danny's blog. I will post a link to the website when it is complete. It is certainly a worthy cause.
