By Caryl Clem:
Kindness and empathy spin
Words that make you grin.
Spreading mental sunshine
Physical evidence of caring
Charitable donation sharing
Multiple systems, non-profit versions
Human generosity, busy repairing
Play it forward, ease another’s burden.
Victims of major disasters crushed
By any Mother Nature’s devastation
Homesteads damaged or broken
Victims feeling lost without protection.
Americans have a network to trust
Courageous trained rescue organizations
State to State Red Cross volunteers
Join Fire and Police Service workers
Create then secure a new beginning,
Human lifelines determined on winning.
I am thankful for educator’s ingenuity
Encouraging every student’s identity
Inspiring, planting the seed
Every student has the power to succeed.
Thankful for the spirit of generosity
Living on in human acts of charity.
