Let's take a moment to talk about kindness.
It's something we're missing in many of our national conversations.
Debates are increasingly rancorous.
Insults are hurled from the right and the left.
Everyone starts yelling louder and with more vitriol just to be heard.
Let's stop and remember...
Kindness is always possible.
It's a choice.
Take a moment to think of the many forms
of kindness you've experienced today.
Help you with a small task?
Make something for you?
Hold a door for you?
Cheer you up?
What did you do for someone else?
How have you made someone else's day brighter?
Kindness is a central part of the Purple Code...
"We will be kind with our words and actions."
It's a choice we make
each time we come together
to find Purple Points.
We make a commitment to be
to one another while we look for common ground.
Let's try to carry that spirit of kindness into all of our interactions...
It's always possible.
"Meet in the Middle"
