Day 1

My journey is beginning after discussing with a few friends that it would be wonderful to start a revolution of kindness and see how it can ripple throughout the world.  I have read the Bible, Buddha and works by the Dalai Lama.  I have also read the Tao de Ching.  I have experienced kindness in my life and have felt personally changed by it.  I have seen how rude words, thoughtless acts and self-centered focus can affect others and how we see ourselves.  I have seen how anger and hatred can change a place of work or a home.  I have seen how a simple smile can be contagious when someone was enraged about something of which I had no idea. I have seen how a laugh can bring us closer together and how a simple act of a gift can melt a heart.   I believe that these simple acts can be just as potent as the violent words and acts we have seen in the news and in our communities.   As I grow older, my hope for the world is that this simple act of starting a blog may begin the change.  This is my first step.
