Think about how much one receives and consider volunteering to help someone, keep busy, repay a dept, or just for fun! No matter what, it will feel good after helping another. In my case I choose to help the R.O.T.C. with the Shepherd Center and the Salvation Army for the Doll and Toy Fund Distribution. For some strange reason I thought it would be a great idea to help famlies in need.
