Kindness don’t have no boundaries. So said Aibileen in The Help about the things that divide people, “They in our heads. Kindness don’t have no boundaries.”
If only we truly got this and lived it. The things that divide us, the things we fear about each other that make us fight and protect ourselves, they’re in our heads.
No matter what your opinion on the acquittal of George Zimmerman, you have to agree that racism and racial profiling are common place in America. Trayvon Martin wouldn’t be dead if more of us lived with radical kindness rather than rampant fear.
How can we overcome fear with kindness, and break down some of the boundaries in our heads that divide and frighten us?
