as i lay on the bed crying, brushing paco away from my face, i began to wonder. i had spent the past hour listening to the last hour of the KS95 for kids radiothon. am i the only one who hears these stories and bawls their fool head off? do other people cry with that mixture of sadness and helplessness and never-ending gratitude that the kids in their life are happy and healthy?
then as i lay there crying, i hear the grand total. over 1.2 million dollars. they raised over a million dollars in four days. and that number alone makes me realize that i’m not the only one who is so moved. next year, i vow to do more than money. i want to volunteer. now i just have to find out how.
