My Girl Scouts have been collecting boxes of cookies to send to U.S. soldiers stationed overseas. We've heard a box of Thin Mints can really brighten someone's day.
For Thinking Day, one of our activities was to write postcards to go with the cookies. We're hoping some colorful smiles and greetings will help to brighten their days a little more.
We're also hoping for an end to the wars and conflicts which keep the soldiers away from their homes and families, making this whole community service activity unnecessary for future Thinking Days.
Those are our thoughts.
