Kindness in the Midst of Disaster

I got this in my email and had to share some heartwarming stories of how people are responding within Japan to get through the worst crisis and disaster to hit their small island.

We always talk about working together... perhaps crisis can give birth to new evolution. --Yuka Saionji

Inspiration of the Day:
Snapshots from Japan: A woman opens up her home and bathrooms to weary travelers walking hours home. A baker gives out free bread. Customers at the supermarket pick up fallen items and quietly stand in line to buy food. An old man at the evacuation shelter asks, "What's going to happen now?" And a young high school boy nearby responds, "Don't worry! When we grow up, we will promise to fix it back!" Among the tremendous ripples of Japan's tsunami are some of the most strikingly powerful yet simple moments of human grace. [ more ]

Be The Change:
When faced with adversity, remember the potential in life's small moments of grace.
