We Can Make a Difference

"No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted."
by Aesop, The Lion and the Mouse
Greek slave & fable author (620 BC - 560 BC)

One person can ALWAYS make a difference. It is the 'discovering' that has us baffled, in awe, in denial and humbles us. How can ONE person really make a difference?

The simple truth is that it is NEVER one person. Every single action, word and thought reverberates and brings us and the world closer to kindness and love or to separation and hatred.

It is always in our hands. To love and be kind and be forgiving - or to be judgmental, petty and unkind.

It always starts with us, individually.

Make a commitment today to act with kindness.

It may be holding a door open, contributing to a cause you believe in, giving up your place in line, filling a parking meter, hearing out a friend even though you're exhausted, inviting someone over for a meal, letting someone know you admire them, sending a greeting card or maybe saying 'I Love You". Any act of kindness will do - it will make a difference.

I promise you - any act of kindness that you do today will be felt. It will be passed on - It will make this world a better place.

Be kind to someone today.

Hey Linda
Thanks so much for contributing to Darryel’s Charity Treks event.

This is such a grass roots event. The organizer spent about $5k out of his own pocket this year to make it happen. There were half the riders of last year – and all the donations go directly to the cause so the entry fees didn’t even cover the overhead this year, there were half the riders because of the economy.

There was one of the scientists/researchers at the closing ceremony, Harriett. Her studies are directly benefiting from Charity Treks. She flew in from UCLA to tell us all that her research has advanced to Phase 2 clinical trials for an AIDS vaccine. That is huge because out of all the attempts hers is one of two that has advanced.

May we all be healthy and well and happy. 

Hugs -d
