Come to think of it, all of the culturally significant things that I've ever done in my life have been inspired by Charles. He's one of those people that suggests "Do you want to attend a protest?" as easily as most say "Do you want to have coffee?"
So the Chinese American Museum had a booth out at some festival and they were volunteers were teaching kids how to make lanterns out of construction paper with a little ingenious scissorwork.
Anyhow, it was such a great experience, and this summer, I vow to a bit more of that, in between volunteering at Project Angel Food and trying to figure out how to start a microfinance club at school. But I wish Charles were around to keep me company!
