“This is the way we save the world: one peaceful word, one act of compassion, one long sweet nap, one burst of laughter at a time.” ~Martha Beck, Finding Your Way in a Wild New World
Watching the news makes me feel hopeless — and helpless. Mass shootings (almost daily). The war in Ukraine. The pandemic. Political ugliness (daily). I long for a new age of unity, peace, civility, and dignity — a tall order that’s seemingly impossible to fill these days.
But each of us can take small steps toward healing — starting in our own homes and communities. We could perform a random act of kindness or two. And how about more praising and less complaining? More giving and less taking? More enthusiasm and less apathy? It’s just a start, but worth a try. How will you save the world today? ~CL
