A new mother smiles

at the baby in her arms,

enjoying the warmth of

loving someone.

A homeless child wanders

on the streets, looking for

the crumbs of someone’s

food in garbage cans.

A restaurant owner wonders

what he should put on the

menu for breakfast, lunch,

dinner, and dessert.

A recent high school graduate

looks through college brochures

for another place to learn

enough to get a job.

A 93 year-old woman stares

out the window, waiting to

pick the right moment to

leave the earth.

An environmentalist picks up

trash on the side of a highway,

yelling at people who throw

litter out the window.

A photographer adjusts his

camera, trying to focus in on

one small thing in the

entire universe.

Seven nobodies do one small

thing that hurts nobody, but

without them, we wouldn’t

have the day we have.
