“Today is a new day.
You can start fresh and begin again.
Wipe the slate clean.
Today you can embrace kindness.
Stand up for justice.
Talk to strangers.
Ask for help.
Listen with your whole heart.
Work for the common good.
You can be the change
you wish to see in the world.
There is nothing weak about kindness and compassion.
There is nothing weak about looking out for others.
There is nothing weak about being honorable.
You are not a sucker to have integrity
and to treat others with respect.”
~ Barack Obama
“No matter who we are,
no matter how successful,
no matter what our situation,

“When we tell you about our fears,
When we tell you we’re afraid for our kids,
When we tell you there are many challenges
we face because of the color of our skin,
~ Champ Bailey
“If your compassion does not include yourself,
it is incomplete.”
~ Jack Kornfield
“Whether one believes in a religion or not,
and whether one believes in rebirth or not,
there isn’t anyone who doesn’t appreciate
kindness and compassion.”

of an open heart.”
