Two men who lost loved ones on 9/11 have started an organization called "My Good Deed," or the 9/11 National Day of Service and Remembrance. My Good Deed embodies what is best in all Americans--our desire to serve, to help, to rebuild. The members of My Good Deed ask us all to pledge to do an act of charity during the week ahead. I'm trying to figure out what mine will be. I'd love to know what some of you might choose.
On a completely different topic, check out this post in Publishers Weekly, on the decision of a New England prep school (annual tuition, 42,850) to abolish its library. Maybe my good deed will be to send the kids there a book.
