Only 26 percent of Americans volunteered last year, according to a new survey by the Corporation for National & Community Service. Just one in four.
That means three out of four people in our country decided they didn't have the time or the interest. Or they didn't see a problem they could fix. Or they couldn't pull themselves away from American Idol or Jersey Shore.
What a difference we could make if we all stepped up, giving of our energy, love and time.
