My friend Perry always said that we underestimate the influence that one person can have. In his circle he always requested that persons try to change their world by a daily act of kindness. He literally knew hundreds of people and never made this request without modeling the goal himself. The point he stressed is that you never know what secret burden someone is carrying and that one moment when you bring a smile,a gesture or a helping hand can make an enormous difference. He urged that we not save all of our kindness and love for the one huge opportunity that may never come but touch the moments that appear every day.I will take heed of his counsel today, and sharpen my antenna so that I will not miss making a difference.
