6-Word Saturday


We can all make a difference!

First Lady Michelle Obama took to the streets of Washington Thursday, volunteering in the food line at Miriam's Kitchen in Northwest DC. Miriam's, as you may recall, is where Ella Numera Una spent last summer as an intern.

Mrs. Obama's visit really puts a face on a problem that has plagued DC and other burgs, both big & small, for a couple of decades. Especially in this time of economic turmoil, it's good to know that folks are still lending a hand to those in need.

Miriam's Kitchen was also the home-away-from-home for Yoshio Nakada, the homeless immigrant who was murdered last Christmas Eve, not far from the posh Watergate complex. Please take a look in Mrs. Scribe's sidebar for more info on Yoshio and how you, too, can help.

I hadn't heard about this. Very touching, thank you so much for sharing this story!

I started Six Word Saturday to be lazy or silly so it really excites me to see people using it in association with something bigger.
