A couple of years ago, my wife and I purchased a new truck. I took my father-in-law out for a test drive to show it off, and I could tell the horsepower and all the extras impressed him. As we turned a corner, however, a truck pulled out in front of us. We have all seen a truck like this…

My father is my hero. He was a German immigrant who came to this country in 1924. He enlisted in the Army Air Corps when WWII broke out to fight for the country he'd grown to love. He was wounded in battle and his best friend died beside him. Although we have newspaper clippings stating he was awarded the Purple…
Inspiration is an internal event. I seemed to have locked the door, yet got some serious help opening it through an online mentoring site (their name says it all!) called FTRnation.com (aka Free Thinking Renegades). I realized my thinking wasn't free, and had to find my way back to it. Loved your post and other comments. Thanks for the info!!

Including others can be as simple as sharing your ethnic/family meal with someone that different than you. I shared my favorite cookbook and recipe with a co-worker of a different ethnic background. He approached me during break and asked for help to make American food. His child is in school and is exposed to many new tastes. I was honored.

The world definitely needs more encouragement and inspiration. Love all your advertising spots on T.V. If more people took your messages to heart and tried to pass them on, what a much more pleasant world this would be. Keep up the great work! I'm really a believer in random acts of kindness. Wish more folks felt the same!

I've been logging on to your site for about a year or so. I must tell you that it is truly amazing the way I have changed my ways and behavior. The way I act and react to simple day to day obstacles have changed for the better thanks to you.

Thanks so mcuh for all your wonderful messages of hope, inspiration, kindness...doing the right thing! In this world of "me first" and endless cynicism, you provide the proverbial beacon of light, in an otherwise dark world. Keep it up, its working.

I am a nursing home nurse, and every time that I work, I smile. Some nurses say that I am little crazy. But I explain to them that the smile is contagious and chronic. The more you do, the more you receive and is more natural. Thank you for this little corner, I really enjoy and appreciate yours advertising.
