Lots to be thankful for

The US thanksgiving is tomorrow and often around this time I start to reflect on how lucky most of us here in Japan are. our lives are soft and around many people there is little profound debate on world affairs and what we need to do.

I read something recently that the reason why people are so active socially in the US is because there are so many problems but since japan has not had any serious trouble - people do not need to get involved. 『Oh come on - give me a break』 is the response I print for all to read. might it have something to do with seeing how lucky we are and not thinking of those who are less fortunate as just weak. I better not get started.

Back to the issue at hand - we can all do a wee bit to make things better by giving just a small bit of our time.

Get out there and get involved - you can make a difference.
choose an issue you are interested in. do some research. get in touch with and visit a bunch of groups and then commit your time. If you need help on getting started, contact me at the PSC at rose.ito@gmail.com
