This I Believe

Draft #1:

This I believe, that one small act of compassion is all it takes to change everything.  We have within ourselves to look into an others eyes and feel their pain, their wonder,their joy.  Yet when i observe the world as a whole it feels as though people are afraid to reach out and pull others to their feet.

A simple action, such as a smile at a sad stranger, a warm “good morning” or “you look nice today.”

It can make a person day go from horrible to decent, make them feel less alone, less afraid of what is ahead of them.  Things like this, this kindness is what makes others believe in ourselves.  Like they matter, and a person who believe in something so simple but powerful can change the world.

You don’t have to religious, or to have thousands of dollars at your disposal, you just have to be compassionate.
