Don’t underestimate the power of kindness and compassion.
Thanksgiving to New Years is my favorite time of year. It can also be a very lonely time of year. I remember my first Thanksgiving in the United States. I spent it alone in my apartment. I thought it would be like any other public holiday – I didn’t realize that that the country shuts down for a day and people gather with family and friends. Walking down city streets felt like the deserted New York City scene in Vanilla Sky.
Inviting friends to share a meal and spend time with people over the holidays can make a big difference in someone’s life. Be kind, be compassionate and join the community.
