PAGE 2 FRSA FLASH THOUGHTS TO CONSIDER !!!Kindness is the medicine needed in todays world. People long for the healing power of words thatsooth wounds and bring joy. Genuine care and concern can change the atmosphere around you.Kind words can be short and easy to understand. Yet, these words are powerful enough to causemisunderstanding, mistrust and hostility to evaporate.Someone once said the following: "Kind words are the music of the world. They have a power thatseems to be beyond natural causes, as though they were some angels song which had lost its wayand come back to earth."Have you shown kindness today? Have your words become music in the ears of the hearer? Be will-ing to love people more than they deserve. Overlook their slights. Keep reaching out with kindwords. You will find yourself being made kind by being kind!
