Act 3

I was at the pet store today to pick up more food for the pup.  I still haven't found another store that carries his food, so I went back to the store from where he was adopted. Standing in line at the checkout, I realized that the same rescue group from where I got the pup was going to be at the store later that afternoon for an adoption event.  It was a spur of the moment idea, but once the thought entered my mind, the decision was a no-brainer.

I bought a second bag of food and left it with the cashier with the following note:

And I did this act for Ana Marquez-Greene.  She was six.  Ana didn't know it, but she was going to get a Kindle for Christmas.  Ana loved music, and followed in her father, a jazz musician, as she too loved to sing.  She danced wherever she went.  Ana often wore a flower in her hair, and is sadly missed by her hockey-playing, also musical brother.

  1. This is great ... I'm sure they could use it ... and now I wish I had taken some of my notes with me (on vacation), but will get right back to it once I get home!

    1. Thanks Amanda! I just peeked over at your blog and I love it! I might have to borrow some of your 26 Act ideas.... Seems like the best way to remember tragedy is to fill the world with kindness instead. Hope you had a great vacation!

    1. Thanks Tamara. I am sitting here on the couch wishing I didn't have to go to work so I could stay home with the pup all day! Great addition to my world!
