I notice that we are getting into the marching season again. Calls are going out to march for this or that medical problem.
While I think it is great to bring attention to various medical problems and to bring in money for their cures or to help those who suffer from the medical problem, it seems to me that just marching is not the way to do it.
Instead of just marching, why don’t the marchers take trash bags with them and clean up the trash they see along the way. Or why not take the number of hours it would take to march 50 miles and donate those hours to Habitat for Humanity, or to visit those who cannot get out of their homes or nursing facilities. They also could visit those who might be suffering from the very medical problems the march is trying to bring attention to.
Attention could still be brought to the problems while helping others.
