Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind. — Henry James

Happy New Year! The new year is a time for self-reflection, to remember the events of last year; our blessings and our challenges and then to think of the possibilities of this year, with its fresh start.

Trying to maintain kindness is a great New Year's resolution.  An act of kindness, whether simple or extravagant, can change a person's life, and the world for the better. Being kind is a way of living, a lifestyle choice. One must strive to make a conscience effort to do one kind thing every day, for someone, the collective welfare, or the planet.

It can be easy to be kind to people close to us. Real kindness encompasses all people. I hope to find new volunteer opportunities and donate more on a monthly basis to charitable organizations this year.

A timely and important act of kindness is to continue to pressure Congress to tighten gun laws, to ban the sale of military style assault weapons, and high-capacity ammunition clips.

By being kind, you realize that all beings are one. What harm one does, to others, they do to themselves. What good one does, to help another, they do to themselves. Kindness gives dignity to everyone. It's a win-win situation.
