I’d like to start off the May blog with a discussion about the upcoming Memorial Day weekend. This is a holiday that most of us get off, and it is a great time to get together with your family and loved ones. This is also a great time to gather material for your spiritual ethical will.
Memorial Day is one of the few times of year when the whole family tries to get together. The weather is usually perfect for a trip to the lake, a BBQ or other outdoor activity. If you are trying to write an ethical essay then take advantage of this annual gathering of the clan. Listen to the stories that are people are telling and pay attention to the activities of the day, as these could make a great entry in your ethical will.
If you don’t want to take physical notes of what is going on, bring your video camera with you. Interview family members about how their year has gone, what news they have and what they plan on doing during the summer. This can also be a great time to document stories from older members of your family. Ask them for ethical examples that they have learned during their lifetime. Also talk with the young members of the family. Get to know them and learn what is going on in their lives, how they feel about what is going on in the world and what they enjoy doing.
Are you planning a family gathering this Memorial Day? Let us here about it. Post reports about what you plan to do this Memorial Day.
