Reflecting on the discord and violence in our nation, Kathleen Parker, a columnist for The Washington Post, penned a provoking piece. In her writing, she proposed that we can impact our world with acts of thoughtfulness. She writes . . .
We can't un-crazy crazy, but we can each try to stem the madness. It begins with simply caring: By looking up from our cellphones and making eye contact; by asking the checkout girl about her day; thanking the garbage collector; doing favors without a scorecard; giving away money because someone needs it more. Sometimes a small gesture of kindness can change someone's day - or life. (Alaska Dispatch News 06.18.2017)I like the Ordinary actions that she proposes. I recall the times when family, friends, and strangers have acted in such ways to me; and I smile.
Make it your goal today to share a small gesture of kindness with this world.
