It’s Earth Day. (Hey, Earth! I’d ask how you were feeling, but I’m afraid of the answer.) Do something today that reduces your carbon footprint. No, seriously, get up off your overprivileged, Western Hemisphere ass and do something. But that’s not what today’s post is about.
Over the weekend, news came out that Country singer Kevin Sharp died at the age of 43 due to complications from his battles with cancer. Sharp wasn’t exactly a household name these days. He was best known for his 1996 cover of Tony Rich’s song “Nobody Knows.” His music career went on after that, but he did better work as a motivational speaker for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. I don’t know exactly what that job entailed, but I’m sure his work for that organization helped sick kids feel a little bit better. That’s an excellent way to spend your days.
If you’ve got the time or money, you can help, too.
