On this World Kindness Day, may your breezes bring forth the hope we need for a caring world. May the extreme chills of hate be driven away by balmy sentiments, acts of justice, and moments of mission. May we see that each of your children hold the Spark of the Divine within their souls and that they deserve dignity and communities of peace.

Kindle kindness between us. While the world may seem frozen and that our collective ethos has slipped into frigid waters, may your Spirit pull us back into a season of summertime which will warm us again.

Amen.
