"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"
- Pete Seeger, in YES! Magazine

Mop & Carry Flowers, etc.

The project:
Generally lend a hand after today's church social.

30 minutes - But all four members of the family got involved. Some folded tables and stacked them away in the closet. Some stacked chairs. We swept and mopped and helped clear tables. We carried a heavy vase full of flowers out to one elderly member's car.

Why bother?
Someone has to clean up after a party. We were there.

Worth it?
Certainly. While it needed to be done, helping here always feels good because all help is so warmly received.
