Maybe it is I am just getting old, but here is what I like to think it is…I like to think there is something tremendous going on in the world. The world that we read of every day in the newspaper or hear about on the news is reckless, dangerous, and full impending collapse and failure. But the one I read and see in the blog world is one of hope, enchantment, and delight. There are ordinary people without huge commercial endorsements or advanced degrees who are doing small random acts of compassionate kindness. These people are changing the world for other people. Not lots of other people…it isn’t a global movement, but I feel safe in saying the people you see on this video will never forget the day a total stranger with a few of his friends walked up to them in a park and gave them a gift.
This is how we change the world…we start by smiling while we are out in public, we hold the door for whoever is next, we say thank you and please, we make pleasant eye contact, we don’t talk on our cell phones while at the check out, we acknowledge that ALL people are worthy of our time and attention.
Watch this video, then reblog it. Spread the word. Be kind. Be loving. Be real…and of course…Be encouraged!
Lucas, a Brazilian man, moves to Australia and is grateful for the country and its people for open their arms to him. On his 30th birthday, he decides to thank 30 complete strangers in Sydney by handing them each a gift. “Man’s first responsibility is to be happy…The second is to make everyone else happy.” Video is paired with beautiful music (This is the place where I feel at home…).
