It wouldn't surprise me if charitable giving increases next weekend, along with greater empathy for others. Dickens' A Christmas Carol had that effect on readers 170 years ago and likely is still true today. Likewise, Christmas at Carroll, next weekend's awe-inspiring concert in Carroll's Shattuck Music Center has always had a positive transformative effect on me. I've been attending for years, and if I weren't in the spirit before the concert, then I sure was three hours later!
I feel bad for the couple in their 60s who were severely burned Tuesday morning during a fire to their Summit Ave. house. Am hoping for a speedy recovery for them.
A Los Angeles Times op-ed cartoon reprinted in today's Journal Sentinel:
Plenty of hope to go around for Thursday's 15th Annual HOPE Thanksgiving Dinner and Auction fundraiser for Hope Center. We hoped to have a good turnout and successful auction, and were blessed with our largest gathering yet and raised more for the needy than with any previous dinner.
