The title sums it up! Can you imagine how the world would be if we gave more than we took? The air would be cleaner, the hungry would be fed, and the world more unified. Giving to others is what I enjoy doing most. I love the feeling that I get “way down deep inside” when I am granted the opportunity to give something valuable to someone. Sometimes a smile, sometimes a kind word, and on the rare occasion when I have an extra dollar in my pocket, watching the eyes of a child glisten when I place the wrinkled bill in their tiny hand. To make giving a reality, I would create the first “Pay It Forward International Law.” Anytime you are blessed by another with something that you need, you must, in good faith, do or give something that you truly feel is of more value than what you received, to someone else. In giving, you would have no regard for race, gender, ethnicity, or any other form(s) of discrimination. Those who gave the most from their own resources and abilities (time, food, mentorship, monetary, housing, etc.) would be greatly rewarded. I don’t want to wait, so I have a great idea: let’s each give someone a blessing today…I dare you!
