THURSDAY – ACTING FOR PEACE
Today is the day to help someone in need – a child, a sick person, and an older or frail person . . .
Help can take many forms. Tell yourself “Today I will bring a smile to a stranger’s face. If someone acts in a hurtful way to me or someone else, I will respond with a gesture of loving-kindness.
I will send an anonymous gift to someone, however small. I will offer help without asking for gratitude or recognition.”
