    • Studies show that kind people are not only happier, they are healthier.
    • Kindness is like a muscle. For some it may be naturally stronger, but every person can build that muscle with practice. And practicing kindness can be simple if we built it into our routine.
    • The simple fact is, no matter what the politicians are doing, there are basic values and ways of interacting with each other that we want our children to demonstrate. We can remind children what our standards are for acting with good character traits, without discussing the presidential candidates. No matter their political views, or the behaviors the candidates are demonstrating, children need to act in a way that they have learned is morally right.
    • “You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.” Compassion is a muscle. It’s flexible when used. Employing it we enter wider circles.
    • Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries, as the Dalai Lama has often said. Our survival both as individuals and communities will now depend on understanding this.
