Ask not what your country can do for you....

Well, since President Obama got started, he has signed executive orders to close Gitmo, established new ethics rules, given a major foreign policy speech at the State Dept, phoned numerous foreign leaders, met with the national security team, worked to block those last minute Bush exec orders, and....oh yeah. At some point in the last few weeks, he recorded a commercial for USA volunteer.org asking for service which is now being broadcast. Check it out.

I now this sounds like selfish whingeing, but it's really hard to think about volunteering, when one doesn't have a paycheck. (Sigh)

But I did give blood today: my pint of effort to the Greater Good.

Volunteering can be an excellent networking opportunity. It also looks good to potential employers. And it makes you feel better about yourself which makes it easier to make a good first impression.
