July 11th Cheer Up The Lonely Day

With the billions of people on earth it seems hard to imagine people could be lonely, but they are, and in alarmingly growing numbers. People who are shut-ins, or living in nursing homes, are often left alone to wonder about life and suffer on their own believing no one cares. Some of these people have family who have more or less forgotten them. We human beings can solve a little of the suffering just by spending time with those who have no one. Just a few minutes of caring can go a long way. The day was created by Francis Pesek on his own birthday in an effort to recognize there is a need for people to connect.

How to celebrate – Visit someone who has no one else to care about them. Do something nice for someone. Look for that one person in a crowd who is still alone.
