I Feel Like I Made a Difference

Yesterday, I wrote this post about the United Way organizing 6000 free dental appointments across the state of Minnesota for children.  Then, I emailed all my coworkers.

Today, I was heating up my chicken enchiladas in the diner when a coworker came up to me and thanked me for sending out the email.  He told me he was taking his son to his first dental appointment ever.  Previously, he wasn't able to afford it.

(My company provides no health coverage, dental or otherwise)

I felt like floating back to my desk.  A child was going to get his teeth cleaned because of me.  Maybe writing Incongruous Circumspection has its benefits after all.
