    I parked my car in the large crowded lot and walked toward the supermarket. A blond woman passed me pushing a nearly full cart to her car. She smiled at me and said hello. I did the same. She was a plain Jane, probably in her 40s. She reached her car and began unloading her groceries. I walked back toward her and...

It is ok to live life one second at a time, other than one day at a time
Christina Denny, Puyallup, Wa

If you leave behind a single vestige of your passage - let it be encouragement. No single relic costs so little and has such worth. An act, a gesture, a helping hand. A positive word placed correctly can produce results unknown or realized in your time. The germination of a thought or an action in others can be produced years later on this invisible chain. Be secure with your words for they can both help and harm with exponential power. Your interactions can be devastating in their consequences,unrelated to your motives. Both self esteem and potential can fall victim to a misplaced word or action. Unknown accomplishments may go unrealized by self confidence misplaced. Be wise, that what is contained in others remains unknown and private,needing to be respected or left untouched. Your dealings should be free of self interest or intention. For like any contact the sensation will be unique for both. Rewards may be exclusive, never shared or directly tied. Let the best direction for your actions be as the Hippocratic oath commands “First do no Harm”
Russell Champlin, San Jose, CA

A life lived with courage includes a lifetime of encouraging others

Just saw your 'Twinkle, Twinkle' advert. Beginning had me cringing, as expected, but by the end I had a lump in my throat. Beautiful, much needed campaign. Thank you.

GREAT DAY, Thank you for the little boy at the piano. The word of "ENCOURAGEMENT" is 1 of the foundations our house will be built on with LOVE and INTEGRITY
Dan P., Cocoa,Fl

I appreciate your spot that reminds us to treat each other encouragingly. Alfred Adler said children need encouragement like plants need water. I think children are not alone in this.
William A., Minnesota

Never underestimate the impact that your belief and faith in someone can have on their life. That kind of goodness is so powerful that it, alone, can turn the tide of the world. Thank you so much for this beautiful organization and for inspiring me.
Christa, Pennsylvania

I would like you to show a video where a little school child is crying because of a little bully and a kind teacher stands up for him. Thanks for all you do for others. You are #1
Maria P, Miami, Florida

There is a very valuble class that i believe our president should implement in schools several times throughout the learning experience called Love and Logic. It teaches people how to handle situations and learn from them without the use of pain and put downs. We should all come together to put this in action in all schools today. These tools of encouragement are probably the most effective way to a better life.
Jana A, California

I just saw the spot on encouragement with the little boy at the piano. It left me with such a great feeling that the mastro took that moment to augment the feeling that the little boy was feeling. Thanks for such a positive spot.
