Obama’s Message: Community Service

Are you a volunteer? Last Monday, for MLK Day, President Obama urged all Americans to spend that day doing some sort of community service. Imagine if he had said, "Volunteer and give your services not just on MLK Day, but all year round." I believe it would have started a much needed movement for giving back.

I certainly haven’t done enough in this department; but I did start to volunteer at the Forest Hills Basketball League as the girls’ commissioner – in early November – and I am so glad I did. Here’s how my Saturdays and Mondays have been spent. Do take a look.
