Let’s break the internet with compassion!

You know, I don’t often ask y’all to take part in things. I’m not a big one on “joining” things myself. But sometimes, it’s just worth it. Over the last couple of months, if you were checking out my Facebook or even reading some of my poetry on here, you probably noticed that the world was bringing me down. A lot. I was feeling helpless and hopeless. I think a lot of people were feeling that way. With so many bad things happening, it’s hard to keep a positive outlook.

Well, my friend Yvonne came up with this marvelous idea. And I had to become involved. So, I helped make this collaboration video. The idea is simple. But some of the most simple ideas are the ones that can leave an indeligible mark. Get 1000 bloggers, vloggers, writers, singers, photographers–people— all over the world, to take a stand on February 20th and just try to “break” the internet with compassion. Flooding the waves with all the good vibes possible. I’m here for it. I have a feeling you might be too.

You folks who’ve stuck around (and the new ones who have been coming to the fold) I invite you all to join this movement. Check out the video that tells a little more and then tell me what you think in the comments.

  1. Great video! I found out about the movement earlier and signed on. I host a weekly flash fiction challenge at CarrotRanch.com and next week we will be exploring compassion. along with my own post on Feb. 20, I’ll post all the compassion-inspired stories. May I use your video (and I’ll link back to this blog post) for my post next week? Thank you for such an encouraging call to action!
