“Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world. For, indeed, that’s all who ever have.” Margaret Mead

Caring is such a powerful word. Everyone you see is a minefield of their upbringing, emotions, losses, triumphs, and even what might have just happened to them that day!

Therefore, take notice, be observant, tread lightly and carefully lest you step on someone and set a mine off. Isn’t it just so easy to look upon someone who acts in a certain way and scoff or see such undesirable behaviour and proudly pronounce it disgusting, unbelievable. Our media are experts at it, labeling the criminal and condemning them, appealing to our sense of righteousness.

It’s easy to join in, isn’t it.

Some people we encounter aren’t playing with the same deck of cards of opportunity and love that we ourselves were given. Some people are and still just make mistakes or bad choices. Either way, caring is surely the only way to help someone in either scenario.

The greatest leaders are the greatest carers and go through the minefield of daily encounters with care their primary weapon of choice.

Do you have any amazing stories of caring you’ve seen in others, or times you’ve managed to care, even in simple ways?
