Staying home

If your day to day responsibilities were taken care of and you could throw yourself completely behind a cause, what would it be?

I’m so exhausted I can’t think on a different cause than the one I dedicate with all my strength: my family. It can sound selfish, but I think that it would be a blatant lack of responsibility and too easy, leave everything and go out to save the world when I can help the society around me doing right what I usually do. I’m a caregiver for an ailing old woman who otherwise would be a charge for the society. I’m doing so because I love her. And I’m glad with this opportunity to give her back the love she gave me. I’m already helping others, above all the hungry. There is an interesting initiative over here called Food Bank. A group of retirees organises a pick up of food and the later distribution among the needy. They get  tons and tons in every campaign they launch. It works very well, because the food really reaches those who need it. Last week, my friends and I filled a whole van with food for community kitchens. But, who cares? What I’m trying to say is that do things right around us may seem dull, but it can be a difficult, exhausting task, of a great responsibility and enormous value.
