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!
There will be much discussion today on what everyone was doing 50 years ago when they learned President Kennedy was shot. I don't remember the day, but as I was only 2-1/2 at the time I know what I was probably doing: dirtying diapers and napping between playing with my toys and teasing my sisters.
How would you spend an unexpected vacation? I had off Friday, but ended up doing a double shift anyway . . . bell ringing next to Salvation Army Kettles!
