When you throw a pebble into the water you see a splash, hear the plunk of the pebble. You might notice concentric circles rippling out. The thrown pebble might have other effects. It may frighten a nearby duck who leaps, or scare a fish who redirects the school elsewhere to find food. You are connected to the pebble, the duck, the fish, the water. You have caused change through a single and simple act. Take time this weekend to do a random act of kindness. You may or may not see any impact or ripples. But you will know in your heart that you created change; someone might be watching and want to do the same. Perhaps some of those ripples will travel into the next generation and beyond. Go ahead, cast one small stone of kindness this weekend.
