The Kindness Revolution

If we dare to dream of a more loving country - kinder, more compassionate, more cooperative, more respectful, more inclusive, more egalitarian, more harmonious, less cynical - there’s only one way to start turning that dream into a reality: each of us must live as if this is already that country.
