Today is World Kindness Day.
The world is changing at lightening speed, and meaningful connections are increasingly elusive. David Friedman, creator of the hit song “We Can Be Kind” offers a powerful reminder of how we need to treat each other, from children to family to co-workers as well as strangers, neighbors and those across the political aisle, in his book, “We Can Be Kind.”
Through story, meditation and suggestions of kindness, Friedman encourages readers to create new ways of building community. Through the practice of kindness, we become most fully connected, alive and integrated.
The past few years have shown us what it is like to live in a less caring world. Friedman’s advocacy for treating each other better and applying the Golden Rule is an idea whose time has come.
His deeply thoughtful handbook for the heart brings it all home with simple suggestions of how to be kinder and why it is more important than ever now.
“We Can Be Kind” is a course in compassion from a beloved composer for Disney Films and Broadway, Daily Show regular and Unity Church spiritual leader. The book provides:
• Lessons on the value of kindness
• Inspiring meditations
• Daily affirmations
• Essential truths
Friedman’s book is available at amazon.com.
