A bookshop owner in Southampton, England asked for help to move his library due to high rent and wanted to move the books to the new location. He was surprised by the presence of more than 250 young people, elderly and special needs people who were also involved. They formed a human chain where they took thousands of books and transferred them hand in hand from the old place to the new place at a distance of 500 feet. The job was done in just an hour.

proud to have worked really hard
with my colleagues
on this chilly fall morning
to help to make the shelter
a better place for those who need it
put their garden
to bed this fall
new possibilities there
for them to awaken to next spring.
i went to the official opening
of the local headquarters
my choice of candidates
for the office of
president of the united states of america.
when i pulled into the parking lot
there was not a space to be had
there was a torrential downpour of rain
yet people of all ages
pouring out of the door
once i walked into the room
so much enthusiasm
so full of hope
it was overwhelming
i’m excited to say that
tomorrow i’ll begin helping them
to try to make it all happen in november.
