Kudos to my friend Wes Moore. His thoughts about fostering empathy, about social entrepreneurship, about not being too quick to praise or condemn others, and about the definition of manliness all are spot on how we feel society could be dramatically improved if we adopted these mindsets and ways of life.

This insightful article by Frank Bruni sends an important message to both parents and children. For parents, he discourages pressuring their children and forcing them to grow up too fast.

Congratulations to the NBA’s MVP — Kevin Durant! He deserves this honor, not just for his strength on the court, but for his courage to be kind both on and off the court. We are proud to partner with this STRONG & KIND individual, and I am inspired by the beautiful speech that he gave when he accepted his award.
For MLK Day, the amazing teachers in my 5 year old son’s classroom asked the kids to share their dreams last week and made a book with all their drawings and wishes for a better world. One dreamt that everyone will be nice to animals, another that everyone will have food, or that every child will have a place to go to school. Romy’s dream is below!
The football team at Olivet Middle School teaches us the meaning of kindness and reminds us how wonderful it feels to make someone else’s day.
