One of my favorite quotations is this: “Be kind for everyone is fighting a great battle.”
It’s often a hard one to remember when we're late and the driver ahead is poking along, or when we're treated rudely or worse, or when someone seems truly mean-spirited or cruel. Yet kindness always matters, and often our lack of kindness and empathy stems simply from our own impatience and self-involvement. Watch this beautiful video to be reminded of the power and joy that comes when we awaken to others’ pain and choose to be of service.
For a kind world,
