Giving $5 is not a lot of money to some people but to some its all they have. You see when I was running for office in 2008 I got a check for $10 from a nice woman. A woman who was as old as my mother when she passed.
I looked at the check and put it down.
Then I cried.
I cried because I knew what $10 meant to the woman. It was a tank of gas, it was a shopping stop at the grocery store for pet food and maybe her favorite tv dinner ( that she would share with said pet), it was a haircut or it was a contribution to the local church fund.
Once I stopped crying I pulled up a piece of paper and wrote her a Thank you card telling her how much I appreciate her time, effort and support for my political campaign. Then I tucked her check in the card and wrote save the $10 for a rainy day.
Its why I am asking only for Five Dollars ($5) for my efforts to walk on October 8th here in San Jose I know how limited we are in all we can do under somewhat relentless unforgiving circumstances of our own mortality.
