What gives you hope? [PBP]

"Happy" by godoflite on Stock ExchangeFor my second H post, I’m going to take a prompt from T. Thorn Coyle … “What gives you hope?“.

In her post, Thorn talks about re-connecting with humanity through random acts of kindness.  In the past I have advocated smiling, and Thorn takes it a step further.

In this age of computers, it’s very easy for us to become disconnected from humanity.  When we interact with our friends through typed words, or brief 140-character exchanges, it’s easy to forget that there is a connection there and we are all on this blue-and-green ball together.

If we reach out to our fellows, through a helping hand, a smile, or sometimes even a not of acknowledgement, we make their day brighter and we re-connect with our own humanity.

There’s not a whole lot more to say .. smile, help, recognize the humanity in each other and we can have hope that the world will become a better place.
