Impact

“A simple at of kindness can have a tremendous impact on a person’s life.”

Over the weekend my son was mugged on his way back to his hotel in San Diego. Two men asked for help and directions on his phone and then hit him over the back of his head, leaving him unconscious. The thought of my son lying on the street all alone unconscious has been with me ever since I saw him safe and sound and back home. The emotions it evoked were overwhelming. Thankfully someone made the choice to help him get to the hospital at that time. I am very grateful for that, while saddened that there is so much anger and fear in the world that it could be acceptable in anyone’s heart to hurt someone for an iPhone.

Our actions have impact on our world. Each choice we make affects not only our relationship with ourselves but affects all those around us. When we act out of fear and anger, we create a world filled with fear and anger. I know that if we act with more kindness and love that we will create more of that. Both those around us and us individually will benefit. I want to live in a world like that.

My son is doing much better. He suffered a concussion and is healing. These events are traumatic and I know love and kindness heals all.

Have a wonderful week.

Love and Light
