"What we think counts, what we do changes things". Joan Chittister, In Search of Belief... Brian can''t imagine not doing good. Emily and Marsha want to make a difference. Sylvia remembers how little her family could afford, yet her Father gave to charity because there is always someone who has less than you do. Carol A. believes that for herself, and for others, doing good comes from God. Charlotte finds the coming together to do good as connecting us, one to the other. Why people do good and where this urge, perhaps even "passion" to do so, comes from are two of several questions for which the author sought answers in the development of this theme. Herein, she asserts that there is no one universal answer to the "why people do good" question. Rather, there are various personal and meaningful answers that people find for themselves as they discuss and reflect upon their individual and distinctive motivations. "Why People Do Good" is also a reflection on community and on our very nature, perhaps our chemistry, that reinforces "doing good" behaviors.
