Compassion for All

When a couple of firefighters in South Carolina noticed an exhausted and dehydrated hummingbird sitting on the curb, they decided to do something about it. The bird was unable to stand or fly so the guys filled up a bottle cap of water waiting for it to regain its strength. Eventually, the bird, which was no bigger than the firefighter’s finger, was back on its feet and flying away. You can teach a man to put out a fire, but that kind of compassion comes from the heart.
A Starbucks in Mexico has just opened up its newest location. What’s so newsworthy about this you ask? The new location will be run entirely by employees who are 55 and over. Starbucks is pushing to give more job opportunities to seniors and contribute to the elderly community in Mexico. Located in Mexico City, the location has 7 employees between the ages of 55 and 60. They currently have younger employees working to train them to eventually run the store themselves. Starbucks is hoping this movement will also help create a bond between our generations.
Danny’s Random Acts of Kindness
Via Fox 4 News
How does a random act of violence become a random act of kindness? Through you. This past Monday, Danny Hunter was only about a block from his house when he was shot in the back. He has no idea who fired the shots, or why they did, but he doesn’t want this act of violence to foster anything but kindness. Danny is asking his family and friends to counter this by carrying out random acts of kindness. This is how we make a difference – building positive outcomes from negative experiences. Thank you for this reminder, Danny.
Which path do you choose to take? We hope you follow us and try to see life in a positive light, using each moment as a chance to make a difference!
