I watched Bill Clinton on Oprah from Tuesday last night. I'm not really a fan of Oprah, mostly because I think she's all "me, me, me" even when doing good things and I'm also convinced she's out to take over the world one book club at a time.
It was interesting to see though the young girl who raised all that money for children in Africa. Because I do believe that one person can make a difference. Maybe not to the extent that this girl ended up achieving, but something good comes out of good.
As it used to be said on Joan of Arcadia, good ripples form.
Watching this did make me feel like I don't do enough for other people. I try to donate my time to causes, mostly because right now I'm poor (I work nonprofit, my pay just about covers rent), but I wonder if I'm doing enough. But the truth is, I'm far lazier than whatever prompts me toward good will.
Stupid Oprah show is making me think about things.
