I think the awesome thing about the story here is how people like Bill Strickland act like this EVERY DAY. Acts of Kindness is their foundation, their center, not just a single special day of the year.

I think when you look at most of the world of business and politics (the two big sustainers of infrastructure for much of life), you don't see what I think are key qualities:




Some people choose to seek influence and power for themselves only. Others, they seek influence and power in order to better serve others. I strive for the latter, and admire those who set out to use their dream to help others realize their dream.


Brilliant read on a Monday morning. This book sounds like an excellent holiday read between classes.

Sounds cheesy, but I "passed the cheer" by paying for the person behind me in Starbucks drive-thru this morning. It's the little things that can make a person's day.

Valeria, I had an "issue" with Acts of Kindness Day, precisely because I thought, what is the purpose of me talking about me?

I love how you've turned this around. And I'm inspired to learn more about Bill.

Be well, stay warm, and have a great week.
