FOR THE GOOD OF THE CORPS
There is a saying in the military, "For the good of the corps." It has a lot of different interpretations. It could mean, you are being asked to put aside your own self interests and make a personal sacrifice for your unit or your command... and you would do it... for the good of the corps. You may get reassigned to a different location or a new duty responsibility that you didn't want or asked for, but you accept it... for the good of the corps. Sometimes, just sometimes; "For the good of the corps," means contributing a joke or a story that helps the morale of the unit.
I want to thank my cousin, Linda in Aruba, for bringing this gem to my attention.
On November 13, 2010 a Mass Choir inconspicuously gathered in a food court in Welland, Ontario and quietly settled down, with unsuspecting diners, for lunch. 31 million and counting, views later, this video is still a great example of how one group can inspire, move, motivate, and entertain another group with a smile and a simple act of kindness and charity. It reminds me of the song; "Reach out and touch, somebody's hand..."
By providing you the link to this video I have extended my hand to you. Now it's up to you to meet me half way.
