When I found this note already on a plant on a trail, I thought it was an act of caring and kindness towards all people who would be walking that trail. This is the kind of caring behavior we humans are capable of displaying. When I see thoughtful actions such as this, I have hope for all of us and the whole planet.
“Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world. For, indeed, that’s all who ever have.” – Margaret Mead
For me as a former teacher, this is a place where caring for the next generation of children needs to take place. I have the good fortune to volunteer for a reading program and experience the privilege it is to help the next generation of children. At this school I have seen in action children who are being well taken care of. However, I have lived in other states where teachers are ridiculously underpaid for the work they do. In those states, who cares about the teachers, so that the next generation can learn and be well cared for?
I love bees. They are so important to our growing food because they pollinate so many things we eat. To me this is sign reminds me about protecting and caring about all animals and insects. We need all of what we have on this planet. Truthfully, I’m still not a fan of house flies, roaches, or poisonous spiders, but these are all part of my world.
Where I live there are many great places to take walks. This walkway was so well cared for and leads to another trail which is along the river where I live. This kind of care of providing lovely places to walk for everyone, feeds my heart and soul with gratitude and reconnects me with my surroundings.
I found this touching story about caring.
This quote from Harvey Fierstein said it all for me. However, I added one sentence to it.
“I do believe we’re all connected. I do believe in positive energy. I do believe in the power of prayer. I do believe in putting good out into the world. And I believe in taking care of each other.” – Harvey Fierstein
My final sentence is: “And I do believe in taking care of myself.”
