Motivation+Aktion: 12 Kinds of Kindness
»Part 1: Build Kindness Not Walls
Before we talk about this step, we’re going to cut right to the chase: We built a kindness ›wall‹ around Trump Tower in NYC this morning. Us, along with about 100 amazing volunteers, stood out front for 3 hours with 40x60 boards that spelled out a very important message.
Part 2: Why Trump?
Excluding people breeds discrimination, hate, and sometimes, terrorism. History tells us that building walls, both physically (like Trump’s proposed wall on the U.S.-Mexico border) and metaphorically (like banning all Muslims from the U.S.), will only cause more problems. We simply cannot shut out people based on religion, ethnicity, race, gender, or sex. Instead of building walls and creating fear, we need to build more kindness, love and acceptance in our country.
There are countless threats facing our world: economic, environmental, geopolitical, societal, and technological. Here in America, racial discrimination is still very much alive, with cops killing unarmed black men at an alarming rate, not to mention mass shootings seemingly every week, ISIS attacks, a large income gap, and our warmest year on record. And then, of course, there’s Donald Trump«.
