Have you done a Paddy Brown lately?
He was a fireman who died in 9/11.
Over on a Web site memorializing him, one of the letters suggested doing a "Paddy Brown" every day. What's that? Doing something nice for someone else.
Why am I thinking about that?
Well, I met Stephen McCarthy last year and turned out he was working for CNBC as a producer on the Donny Deutsch show. He called my cell phone today and said "I have something for you."
We met up and he handed me a DVD. On it it simply said "Remembering Paddy."
Tonight I watched it.
The first few minutes set the tone. He just filmed Paddy's phone messages. People calling him on the morning of 9/11.
It got worse and worse. Then Stephen told us about his friendship with Paddy (he covered Paddy when he was a video news reporter) and his camera introduced us to Paddy's family and friends.
Can you make a difference in the world? Why don't you try doing a Paddy?
I'll find out when Stephen's video will be on air (he thinks it'll be on one of the major networks in about a month).
