Befriend a Stranger

In this age of terrorism and intolerance, it is easy to fall down the rabbit hole.  Rather than pretending there is nothing we can do, why not challenge ourselves to be a source of kindness and compassion to those we do not know, yet whose paths we cross everyday? Why not be a bridge to those who seem foreign, unknown, different? Your smile, compliment, acknowledgement, or greeting to someone you do not know, may be the only encouragement this person receives all day! There is serious power in contact and connection. It is said that our greatest achievements may never be known to us. So, why not leave a secret trail every single day of the good-in-action? We are either ambassadors of fear or love.
