When was the last time you said ‘Thank You’ to the local police? When was the last time you gave a bottle of water to a person doing construction work? Or when a person was having trouble with getting the groceries in their car, when did you help?

There is a reason that I ask — this country has become so focused on the money aspect and what they are getting out of it that they don’t stop to think of what kindness can do.

Let me give you an example: I asked a person for some help due to some challenges that I have. I wanted to know if when they got their mail, could they get mine for me. With a walking challenge that I have it is hard to do sometimes — their response was ‘What do I get for it?’ This is getting the mail for a person with a disability, not going to the moon.

I was raised in a way that if the person had done that in my family (the official word is OUCH!) they would have had a lot of explaining to do. Now the cultures have changed so to where if you ask someone for some assistance they expect to be paid.

I know that times change, people’s looks on things change but my problem is this … when did we lose our humanity and sense of community? I have seen people who live in the same house, be in the same room and talk via texting! What would happen if their phones went poof? What if they had to use a pen and paper to write the report out?

The last job that I had, there were some ‘kids’ that didn’t know how to write in script. There are times that I get bored and will pull out a notebook and write. These ‘kids’ (under the age of 25) had no idea what it was that I was doing. They also had little to no manners.

My challenge is to show one person a bit of humanity, to say thanks to a local police officer, give a stranger working in the heat some water, help a person for no reason other than they need it and see the response you get.

  8. どうも。この十数年、空き家が戸数増加しています。空き家の検討を具体的に理解しないと大損害を負う可能性が否定できません。
    空き家を売るという人はお隣さんよりも今すぐに空き家買取業者交渉して早期に売り出しものとするのがベストです。
    その理由は、空き家を求めている人が多くはないから、買い手市場の状況になっているからです。同じことですが空き家を有効活用する場合も同じことが言えます。空き地を活用するなら事業者の協力はあるにこしたことはありません。一般人ではどのような選択肢が選べるのか、何にどれだけの費用がかかるかという専門的なことが計算できないからです。
    わからないうちに手を打つことは想定外の事態になるでしょう。空き家問題で悩まないためには、可能な限り早く、そして、プロの支援を求めることが大事なことだと言えるでしょう。空き家をそのままにしておくと崩壊などのリスクも考えておかないと駄目です。火事を出したならその責任は持ち主が持たなければなりません。もし、そんなことになってしまうと固定資産税などのコストだけでなく賠償責任まで負います。その責任は大変な額になりど

    Thanks. In the past few decades, the number of empty houses has increased. We can not deny the possibility of major damage if we do not understand the examination of empty houses concretely.
    The person who sells a vacant house is best to negotiate a vacant house buyer immediately and sell it early rather than the neighbor.
    The reason is that there are not many people looking for a vacant house, so it is in the situation of the buyer’s market. The same thing can be said of the same thing when effectively using vacant houses. Cooperation of business operators has never made it to utilize vacant lots. It is because ordinary people can not calculate expertise such as what kind of choice can be chosen and how much expenses it will cost.
    It is unexpected situation to hang a hand while you do not understand. In order to not suffer from vacant house issues, it can be said that it is important to ask for professional assistance as soon as possible and for professional assistance. It is useless unless you leave empty houses in mind as well as risks such as collapse. If a fire is issued, the owner must have responsibility. If such a thing happens, we will assume not only the cost of property tax etc. but also liability. The responsibility will be a tough amount and no matter how you think about it you will not be able to pay it individually.う考えても個人では払うことはできないでしょう。
