ResourcesWays you can help / We The Protesters / Being Antiracist
Touch a Heart Tuesday
“Be a little kinder than you have to.” ―
Take the opportunity to show and share some love. Just like the 60's tune goes, "Put a little love in your heart", and this stands very true even to this day. After all, love is eternal and a little bit of love goes a long way.
Willing to Lend a Hand Wednesday
“When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.” ―
Offer someone your time, help, or advice today. It does not have to be anything grand or large, although we would not discourage that, even the smallest bit of help to someone is great!
“No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.” ―
Be mindful of those around you; whether at home, at work, or in public. Try a little harder to break free of your own busy world and to be more aware of other people's feelings. It's a wonderful thing when you can be more thoughtful and considerate.
Forgive Your Foe Friday
“There are two things a person should never be angry at, what they can help, and what they cannot.” ―
Try to find in your heart a way to alleviate any anger, confusion, or hatred you may be feeling towards other people or even towards yourself. Anger is dangerous and can lead us to make foolish mistakes.
Speak Kind Words Saturday
“Speaking kind words starts a wave of love in motion that brings more love upon your shores.” ―
Think before you speak. The spoken word is extremely powerful. Don't forget that what you say has terrific influence on everyone around you. It can hurt and it can heal. Once blurted out, you cannot take your words back.
Sacrifice Our Wants for Others' Needs Sunday
“I’ve been searching for ways to heal myself, and I’ve found that kindness is the best way.” ―
Do something for somebody else in need. Let your desires come second on this day and give a little something to someone else.
Motorist Consideration Monday
“Smile, breathe, and go slowly.” ―
Practice patience and consideration while traveling. This includes all forms of travel, whether it be by car, bike, bus, plane, train, or while walking.
