While a clearly worthy endeavor, having to teach about kindness reflects the current challenges we face in continuing the efforts to bring about equality, justice and dignity for all people. Yet, we can gain hope from knowing we can learn to be kinder, and that even just connecting more and hearing each other’s stories can be a catalyst for strengthening our sense of empathy, and for moving the ball of positive change forward.
For our own wellness and that of our communities, we can take Eduardo’s call to action to heart: Let’s put down our phones, connect more with people and ask of ourselves and others, “Are we kind?”
With appreciation and best regards,
Sandy Sohcot, Director
