Because home shouldn't hurt.
Have no fear, because spring is around the corner, and warmer months are ahead. In the meantime, take as many steps as you can to boost your mood and help others along the way.
Use this as a reminder to commit acts of service to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Even after the holiday passes, his spirit can carry on. Explore new ways you can give back to your community, involve your family and friends and set attainable goals for yourself.
My community prides itself on its main street charm. Picturesque small towns dot our county map. We have beautiful lakes, bubbling trout streams, rolling hills, and nature trails for miles. There is an abundance of fresh water, clean air, farms and produce stands. Different houses of worship seem to spring up every block or two, mile or two, and every 10 dirt roads or so. It's the kind of place where neighbors care, veterans are thanked for their service, laws are obeyed, and doors are still held open for the next person heading in or out. It's perfect really except when it's not. For several years, we have been in the top handful of counties across Pennsylvania with the highest rates of substantiated reports of child abuse per capita. Rural, we are. Excused, we are not.
