Quote of the Day: In every community there is work to be done. In every nation, there are wounds to heal. In every heart, there is the power to do it. Marianne Williamson, American Spiritual teacher

Do you know about Mercy Ships that are international floating hospitals? They are able to travel from port to port providing care to people in nations where medical care is very limited. They have served many African nations, and show up in the aftermath of hurricanes. Here’s a short video on the Mercy Ship.

Many of the staff are volunteers. They provide hope and healing to people with deformities and debilitating diseases. Many of those patients are shunned from their communities. What they give them is a chance to not only survive, but thrive, and to go back to their communities to live and work and pass along the love they received on the Mercy Ships. 

Not all of us are called to serve on Mercy Ships, or travel to other lands to work and to heal. We all can offer our love and support right where we live. We can also support those who do travel out into the world. Every act of kindness sends a ripple effect out into our communities and beyond. Try Kindness today.

Go. Create. Inspire!
