make a difference

The biggest thing you can do today is a small act of kindness
-Cory Booker, Mayor of Newark, NJ

Mayor Booker was on the radio and told a story about how he became a complete shut-in while studying for the bar exam...his landlord, a man who did not know him well, noticed he wasn't going out and started checking on him. The landlord brought him food and did his laundry because he could and knew it would help. A small act of kindness that will always be remembered.

What can you do today to help someone, just because?

Sometimes a smile is enough. Holding a door open, calling a friend you haven't heard from in a while, and so much more. Follow your heart, I know I will! Thanks for the reminder Kim.
