Compassionate Acts

The holiday season promotes
a heightened sense of community.
It draws our chins up and
helps us look above and over the limiting fence of our own events,
activities and preoccupations.
The opportunity for a heroic gesture
can tap you quietly on the shoulder in the midst of a holiday bustle.
If you are attentive, you will notice the gentle touch
and will be able to respond.

There are no small acts of kindness.
Every compassionate act makes large the world.
