The old man outside our building

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

There was this old gentleman in our buildling. I never knew where he lived. He had a walking stick. He looked so wobbly, I was wondering why on earth he didn’t have a proper walking aid!?

  • I always saw him alone
  • He always looked fragile
  • I always thought to offer him help – and never did
  • I saw him less and less often
  • At some point I didn’t see him anymore – I couldn’t even offer him to get some groceries for him

It can’t stay like this – I had enough time. Others probably, too. Did I want to committ to helping every Friday or Saturday? Not sure.

This is how the idea of New Society was born: giving people like me the freedom of giving time when my busy life allows it.

I wished I had started earlier. I wished I had approached him.
