Today I gave blood for the national day of service. It was really busy there, which they were not expecting, especially because it was a holiday. Everyone who was donating was so kind. One woman helped the lady at the "canteen" (where you sit and drink juice and eat donuts after donating) put the water bottle on the cooler because it was too heavy. One woman jumped up to help an old man put on his coat. Another woman helped a blind woman with her bags. It just seemed like everyone was in such a good mood, everyone wanted to help. I feel like the mood of the country has changed. We may be in tough times, but it's never too tough that we can't help out those around us. It was a good day.
