Kindness is all we really leave behind

The Music Video That Circled The World

http://www.karmatube.org/videos.php?id=4472

The 21-Day Kindness Challenge launched on September 11th. 98 countries. 6000 people. And a collective tidal wave of good that inspired many — including young rapper-activist “Nimo” Patel at the Gandhi Ashram in India. Nimo wasted no time channeling that inspiration into an infectious music video. “Being Kind” was created on super short notice by an intercontinental crew of volunteers working out of their living rooms. It features footage from all over the world and heart-melting appearances by the children Nimo works with in the slums. Watch, listen, and prepare to smile big at this lyrical reminder that kindness really is “all we can leave behind.” – See more at: http://www.karmatube.org/videos.php?id=4472#sthash.sKqHJqmN.dpuf

About The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap

The year 1895 was filled with memorable historical events: the Dreyfus Affair divided France; Booker T. Washington gave his Atlanta address; Richard Olney, United States Secretary of State, expanded the effects of the Monroe Doctrine in settling a boundary dispute between the United Kingdom and Venezuela; and Oscar Wilde was tried and convicted for "gross indecency" under Britian's recently passed law that made sex between males a criminal offense. When the news of Wilde's conviction went out over telegraphs worldwide, it threw a small Nevada town into chaos. This is the story of what happened when the lives of its citizens were impacted by the news of Oscar Wildes' imprisonment. It is chronicle of hatred and prejudice with all its unintended and devastating consequences, and how love and friendship bring strength and healing. Paulette Mahurin, the author, is a Nurse Practitioner who lives in Ojai, California with her husband Terry and their two dogs--- Max and Bella. She practices women's health in a rural clinic and writes in her spare time. All profits from her book are going to animal rescue, Santa Paula Animal Shelter, the first and only no-kill shelter in Ventura County, CA, where she lives. (see links below on Ventura County Star Article & Shelter) To find out more please go the The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap on facebook or Amazon or e-mail us at the gavatar addresses. Thank you.

    I sometimes wonder if I am a kind person.
    There were times when I was just that – might have just lost sight of what’s really important.
    Well, something I have to work on I think. Thanks for the vid P – it was quite beautiful – made me think…

    • Good morning, G. If I might be so bold, you’re coming here to comment to share is a kindness toward me. The interchanges with your cyber friends, what you do for your boys, the gifts you make, tending to your pond to save the fish, having a work ethic that can only help others, and so much more. Really, it’s not big huge things and we’re all human struggling with our human emotions and reactions. But the proof of the pudding is in the act. Being who we are, authentically is who we are. The question is how do we treat others? You’re my friend Ghia and I’m grateful for our connection. Love, Paulette

    Paulette, This is making the rounds, and rounds, and rounds, and that is a good thing. This is a wonderful video, and if opens even a single set of eyes then it has served a wonderful purpose. Please take care, and be safe, Bill

  24. If only… Why can’t we all just live peaceably and leave each other with love? I know the answer, but sometimes, I just have to ask.

  25. WordsFallFromMyEyes says:
