Something as simple as writing a few sentences can have a positive impact on people. I carry a box of note cards in my car and briefcase so I always have the ability to write a note. Read the article at http://www.everydaygiving.com/ezine/29JUN05.html and get motivated to write a few notes yourself to people that you care about. It will change you as well.
The President gave a speech last night. He encouraged everyone to visit the website http://americasupportsyou.mil. The website allows you to send a message of support to our military men and women. You can also find out about a variety of ways to get involved and show your support for our Troops.

I love this idea of notecards in the car, that is SO thoughtful, smart, and EASY to do. Sort of a ‘random acts of kindness’ approach; a driveby of outreach and civility so to speak…Great idea!
p.s. On the troops note, I’ll add that kids artwork has been a big hit too, serving as ‘decor’ for many homesick service folks…I’m about to ship out some for N.Y. wishes of peace and love from our tweens here at S.Y.
The artwork is a great idea!
There is a great discussion going on at http://www.shapingyouth.org/blog/?p=928 regarding the topic of digital vs. handwritten notes.
