Kindness Takes Time – February 6, 2023

...this epidemic of good deeds and dispositions was out of my control. I put down my book and watched as the Samaritans began to multiply out on the street. A pizza guy stopped to hold a door open. A woman stood still while her dog said hello to a puppy. A man on his phone paused his call and executed a tiny soccer move to stop something rolling down the street being chased by a panicked teenager.

    Tulis, There is kindness in the world that often hides. Your gift is that you are able to recognize it. Thank you for sharing your musing and your kindness.

      Sometimes the spirits just have to hit you over the head with a 2 x 4 in order for you to get the point.

    I absolutely love this essay. I felt hopeful after I took the time to hear it. Time well, and wonderfully, spent.

Is it possible that the women are not given equal opportunity to be seen on national television because they are, well, just women athletes? Good Gravy – could that be?
