HUMANKIND: Be Kind. Be Kind. Be Kind.

 


Sometimes a writer can do no better than to leave wide gaps in expression knowing each reader will fill in the gaps based on their own experience. The title to this short post and the accompanying quote stills my beating heart.

I imagine a dying animal in the wild turned from predator to prey by a broken leg. 

As a Human Community, we celebrate accomplishments, we grieve losses. we express ourselves in words and actions. 

Be kind. Be kind. Be kind.

Kindness defines us.

We can do no better.

They went around the circle at my first group meeting in the psychiatric hospital asking each of us in turn how we felt.


It wasn't long afterwards, as I recall, that I was prescribed psychiatric medication. 
Is anyone surprised that it took me eight years of relapsing on drugs and alcohol before I found 18 years of continuous recovery?
