With temperatures in the 30’s today, on this Tuesday in America, I took a walk. Nothing unusual about that except that even though my heart was in pain and my feelings hurt, I denied the scowl and offered a smile to the passing car or the fellow dog walker on the golf course. I noticed how quickly the anger and “suffering” that someone “out there” was causing me, disappeared. Even if only for that brief moment there was no you or I but a common we. That feeling of belonging cannot be more important in these confusing times. It is not so much how the American dream is coming apart at the seams, but our response to it. For what is more important than a shared smile, hug or even tearful goodbye? What is more important than the love that is the “human element”. Dig deep and even as the storms rage around you, smile and give it away to your neighbor, friend, colleague, wife, and even those who look as if they are an “enemy”. I usually get 90% wave numbers. You would be surprised how far that simple act of kindness will go. Peace M
