"Stay positive, work hard, and make it happen."
A tourist climbed out of his hire-car in downtown Washington, D.C.
He was intent on visiting the White House and take in the city’s other world-famous sights, but he felt hungry so he decided to pop into a store to buy himself a snack.
As he pulled up to the curb outside the store, he saw a well-to-do man standing on the sidewalk.
He said to him: “Listen, I’m going to be only a couple of minutes. Would you watch my car while I run into this store?”
“What?” the man huffed. “Do you realize that I am a member of the United States Senate?”
“Well no,” the tourist said, “I didn’t realize that. But it’s all right. I’ll trust you anyway.”
It's Volunteer Recognition Day! Our world is so much better because of the scores of people who donate their time and resources for others! It's also Chinese Language Day, Cheddar Fries Day (remember to track them), Pot Smokers Day, and Teach Children to Save Day. It's also International Cli-Fi Day. Cli-fi is climate fiction, a genre of novels that center around a world affected by climate change as a way to remind us to deal with climate change now.
