The everyday kindness of the back roads more than makes up for the acts of greed in the headlines. ~ Charles Kuralt 1934-1997, American Journalist


Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama

Since I’m away from home this holiday weekend of Thanksgiving in the United States, we’re keeping this post shorter than usual.

In today’s topsy-turvy world, it’s easy to grow cynical about the human race. Is there any hope for us? Well, Charles Kuralt, in his words above, certainly seems to think so. I agree with him.

One of my favorite people is the current Dalai Lama. He’s legendary for his spirit of kindness, a beautiful role model for all of us.

Another favorite of mine is the late journalist, Charles Kuralt. Charles was famous for his “On the Road” shows, part of the The CBS Evening News with the legendary newsman, Walter Cronkite, and later as the anchor for CBS News Sunday Morning. Both men always impressed me as being very kind.

So what about the rest of us in the human race? Being an eternal optimist (which some folks close to me describe as a fatal flaw), I believe there is a powerful undercurrent of kindness in all people. Many of us are experts at hiding it. But it’s past time for us to let it all out, don’t you think?
