Well, hello again. Another Sunday night, another post from me to you. I'm amazed at the reach of this new blog. I sit here on a tiny speck of the globe in Canada, writing about kindness, and many of you lovely readers are from across the globe. A good percentage of you are from Europe, and it brings me back to my thoughts on the incredible social connecting power of the Web. There are so many voices to be heard from all over the world.
The Web has provided me many opportunities to connect with, listen, watch and understand people that I probably would not have met in a different scenario. So, I'd like to make a suggestion: pay attention. Many of us love social media websites (you're reading a blog, aren't you?). So, while we're having fun looking at photographs of our friend's latest island vacation, let's make note of what's really going on in people's lives, what they care about, what they're concerned about and what we can do to make others and ourselves happier. Before you rule out this idea, keep in mind that you don't have to give up posting funny internet memes or playing games on your favourite social media website.
So, are you in?
