I believe the the human race, I believe that what we focus on will grow. It’s with great sadness that I see that the focus is very often on hate, on war, on revenge, on judgement. I’m realistic, I live in this world, here are so many injustices, unbelievable cruelty happens everyday around the world, but here is also light, here is kindness and here is love and I want to believe that most people in this world choose love and kindness every day.
If I could start a petition it would be the petition that everyone choose kindness. As the headmaster in R.J Palacio’s book “Wonder” says in his end of the year speach:
“If every single person in this room made it a rule that wherever you are, whenever you can, you will try to act a little kinder than necessary – the world really would be a better place. And if you do this, if you act just a little kinder than is necessary, someone else, somewhere, someday, may recognise in you, in every single one of you, the face of God. Or whatever politically correct spiritual representation of universal goodness you happen to believe in :-)”
