Deepen not Broaden our Connection

One of the most underrated tools in conflict transformation and Peacebuilding is Kindness. Kindness, like soccer, crosses all obstacles (race, religion, culture, gender, age etc.). It is the most powerful language on Earth that everyone can understand, speak and act out. In this way, kindness itself can empower communities and individuals and create humanitarian connections worldwide that are sustainable over time.

When we go beyond duties that are expected of us and reach out to help another person or group of people, then we are performing Random Acts of Kindness.

"Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for kindness"~Seneca

This quote engulfs the power and reach that kindness has in our society today. With the population soaring to new heights every single year the importance of kindness becomes higher and higher. Technology keeps advancing exponentially and human connection seems to broaden but not deepen. We must deepen our compassion and connection with other humans subjectively in order to not objectify our existence.

"When we are kind, we express the best of our humanity."

Be a catalyst of change and an agent of kindness. It is our duty as human beings for the short time we are on this Earth to love and cherish those around us.
