it was amazing

I throughly enjoyed this book. Yes people may say its too idealistic, blah blah blah. Well, we should all aim to be as non-judgemental as possible and compassionate every day. I always tell people that it is the little things... The opening the door for the person in a wheelchair and not staring. Picking up a pacifer for a Mom with her arms full. Making conversation with the janitor and thanking him on a regular basis. Helping an elderly person find something at Publix when they are looking confused at their list. Or listening to a friend and sending love their way through a hug or card or a "I love you". Money helps, donations are great, but they aren't everything. So anyways, this book was right up my alley.
