Stephen, ignore the negative posts -- thanks for putting yourself out there and encouraging us all to participate in something fun.
@Mouser - I don't think anybody was being negative. Just a little critical of some people feeling the need to always have drama whenever they're asked to do something. Whatever happened to giving to a worthy cause just because giving was the right thing to do?
I'm also noting how the activities are beginning to shift from passive actions (like walking or turning on your car headlights) to show your support, to more - shall we be polite and say marginally aggressive behaviors
? I'm talking about things like shaving your head, or dumping ice water on it, to somehow "prove" your "commitment" to a cause. What's with this element of low-key personal humiliation that's beginning to creep into what traditionally has been considered "noble action?"
Makes me sometimes wonder what's going on here. Is this a trend we really
want to encourage?
