This quiz pegged me perfectly. I am a cultural creative as they define it. I do believe in the divine, but I also believe in the ability for humanity to charter its own course through collective responsibility. I don’t mean communism. I mean community. One person reaching out, whenever possible to help his fellow man, even in small ways is the type of responsibility I am talking about. The problem is being conscious of the opportunities when they present themselves. I recently had an opportunity to reach out to someone and failed. It has really bugged me ever since. I was driving to the airport to pick my brother up. I stopped to fill my gas tank before jumping on the highway. As I was waiting in line I noticed a man standing near the register, having an animated conversation with what could only have been a belligerent credit card company. There was some sort of problem with the account, he needed to pay for his gas and he was having a problem. I doubt this was a poor person, based on his clothing and general stature, but he was clearly a man having a rough night. I could easily have eased his burden, in the hope that he would in turn ease the burden of someone else. I chose not to. It is still not entirely clear to me why. It is kind of a Pay It Forward philosophy, but a continuous one.
Let’s make it a running theme here. I will try and find a cool custom counter to code into the blog and each time one of my readers comments with a Community Moment (or a better name if you can come up with one) we will add it to the counter. Anyone who knows about html coding and/or knows of one that exists already, please feel free to forward it along to me. You get a link in exchange and a G-mail account if you want one.
