Cleaned up trash around neighborhood with more friends
Annalea and I moved into our neighborhood in May of last year. Since then, we've noticed the trash that litters the streets around our house. We decided it would be good to plan a day to walk about the neighborhood and pick up trash. We didn't anticipate staying out so long, but we had a great time walking about the area, talking, and making our community cleaner and prettier. Later, we actually planned other dates and invited more people! It was a ton of fun to clean up the streets with some friends.
At this event, I was able to write letters to veterans who have come home, as well as those who are still serving. While I was writing the letters, I found myself asking what I would want to hear if I were in their shoes. It was very enlightening to visit that frame of mind, and I'm happy I might've brightened their day.
