one year

I don’t know who you are. I don’t know the answer. I don’t know what to do. But I have to do something.

Here’s what I have.

I have a quarter. I have a map. I have time. I have strength, and I believe that is my job as a human being who is happy, safe, and fulfilled to do what I can for the ones who are not.

There’s not a lot I can do, but I can do one thing. Every day I will do one thing, and record. That’s it. Every day I will try. Starting today—-the one year anniversary—-I will help. In the beginning, I gave to a man who asked. In the beginning, I pointed out a button. I helped a mother carry her baby in his stroller down the subway steps, and at the bottom, she held onto my hand.

God bless you when you have a baby, she said.
