- No E-cigarettes (11/3/2021)
I stopped a Facebook market seller from selling E-cigarettes by explaining how bad the vaping causes the body. I didn’t know the seller, and I was ready to accept scolding from the seller. Luckily the seller accepted not to sell and thank me for explaining.

- It feels good to give. (5/27/2021)
During the snowstorm in February, we had about two feet snow over one night. We have a powerful snow blower and it only took us 40 minutes to clean our driveway. After we were done, we let three neighbors use our snow blower to clean their driveway. It feels good to help someone.

- Helping with household chores (5/27/2021)
- Animal Liberation (5/26/2021)
I had the opportunity to participate in animal liberation this year (before lockdown) and it was amazing, as I have never done it in my hometown before. Freeing the animals and reciting prayers so they may achieve precious rebirth and enlightenment in next life is simply wonderful, made me feel that animals are not meant for human consumption, as they deserve to be alive as well. It also motivated me to do other good deeds such as food donations for the poor and oxygen tanks funding for India, so knowing that every little bit of good deed may help others along the way. I’m grateful to discover the Dharma way.
