"Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much." Helen Keller
Today I witnessed this in action.
Today, Mari and Dan saw just how many people care about them, and wanted to help.
I arrived at the benefit late, in the last hour, and the line was still long, and parking was hard to find. When I got a chance to visit with Mari, she told me it had been like that all afternoon, and by 12:30 the line wrapped around the building twice. She seemed completely overwhelmed, and very tired. But she was still smiling.
I am so grateful that there are people who understand that it isn't what we do for ourselves that is important, it is what we can do for others that really makes your heart sing.
EDITED Monday morning: Both KARE 11 and Fox 9 did TV stories on the benefit, if you go to their websites and search for Mari Plaster you will find the stories.
