I choose to offer the gift of kindness to those around me…

One year ago today, I was preparing to lead an Ash Wednesday service at my church. Today, one year later, I realize that we are not dust but instead… stardust. The answers to humanity’s problems are not found in self-depreciation to a deity, but in our ability to see the interconnectedness we possess as we reach out to help our fellow human. Instead of placing ashes on someone’s forehead today, I choose to offer the gift of kindness to those around me. Not for a reward that exists in another place after I die, but in the here and now in this life.
