It will help you turn on your own radar to be on the lookout for acts of kindness and how we all have it in us to step up and be a positive influence in someone else's life by the simplest of gestures.

Here is an excerpt from my own piece I contributed to the book titled "Oh Holey Sight." What followed was the most beautiful thing to see as it all unfolded.
"Early one morning as my daughter took her kids to the bus stop she noticed the little boy. It was the same little boy that she watched board the bus with her kids over the past seventy-two days. This particular little boy (accompanied by his sister and cousin) was easy to spot because during those seventy-two days he had the same pair of pants on with holes in them. Not the kind of ripped jeans that are in style now but real holes. This would be her last day of remaining silent even if that meant stepping on the parent’s toes.
She made a single facebook post that very morning about the little boy with holey pants. What happened next was something very beautiful to witness. One by one the comments and private messages started coming in from all over town as well as the surrounding towns asking what size the little boy wore. Over the next couple of weeks..."
This is just one of the 365 stories in the book, one for each day of the year. Mine can be found on September 24th in the book. It will help you have faith that goodness truly still is alive and well in this world and will inspire you to uplift others in their time of need. Each of us can make a difference and keep kindness going in our world so that goodness continues to grow and abound.
