For Goodness' Sake

When is the last time you've knelt-down to tie the shoe of a 5-year-old? When is the last time you cared enough to remember someone's birthday? Do you have the presence of mind to listen instead of making excuses when someone is expressing concern? Can you set aside your own needs and wants in seeking the greatest good for someone or something else? Can you extend yourself for others purely because it's the right thing to do and without the expectation of personal benefit?

Are we willing to trade in our problems for our possibilities? Are we willing to lift what is low, to unite what lies apart, to advance what is left behind? Is it time to have a conversation that we have not had before? 

Thank you to Larry Ferlazzo (@Larryferlazzo) for posting this.
