Today somebody folded a Soul Box. Someone who wants to see an end to the gunfire epidemic took the time to do something good for the world. Something creative. Something calming. Then someone else folded another. And again. Each Soul Box brought a bit of peace to this chaos we call real life. If one of those somebodies was you – thank you. You are making a difference.
