7/7/7 Luckier than 7/6/7?

It comes, but once in a Last year it was 6/6/6, next year 8/8/8. Does anyone remember what they did on 5/5/5?

People seem to have an endless capacity for superstition. Today, will be popular for weddings and casinos. Hell, Michigan is celebrating with a Lucky Sevens Festival. And Lake Huron Campground in Port Sanilac has chosen today for its Grand Opening complete with fireworks and a marriage/commitment vow renewal under the stars.

Will today be appreciably different for the homeless, hungry, poor? Will today be any different for the unemployed, downsized or discarded workers? Any special luck today for youth finding a higher education out-of-reach?

A lottery ticket is never the answer to intractable injustice--not even on 7/7/7. Do something nice for someone today. Give a little. Try it tomorrow, too.
