Why you should do 'little things'.

 Sometimes Facebook is creepy because old acquaintances from high school look you up.  But then sometimes, something like this arrives in your inbox, and totally makes your week:

"I actually looked you up because I wanted to tell you that half a million years ago, when I was a seriously picked on and unpopular kid, you were one person who was really kind to me. You wrote me a letter once, telling me to always stand up for myself and be strong, and not to listen to all the kids who told me I wasn't cool. I still have that note, I keep in it my wallet. I can't believe how long I've hung onto it. Anyways, I just felt like I should tell you that you really made a big difference in my life, and I've always appreciated it. I hope you know that that little gesture, that you probably don't even remember, really meant something to me and still does. Thank you."


  1. It should come to no surprise to anyone who has met you Dan, that you have always been this type of person. A great role model for the rest of us!
