It’s Time To Celebrate

Well, another super successful year for Be Kind to Humankind! Thanks in part to HappyNews.com who featured BK2HK each and every day of its celebration! A special thanks to you HappyNews!

Of course kindness and kind deeds should be focused upon each and every year, all 356 days! I cannot emphasize that enough. I wrote a book which is all about BK2HK and its history. After all, it is over 22 years old now and there is a lot to write about. But once in text it is not a huge book at all. The book will be a rather small paper back, so it will be easy to carry, pick up and read randomly whenever you are in need of a little pick-me-up emotionally. Let’s face it, we all need a pick-me-up once in awhile! I plan on having the book published and ready for purchase by next spring. If not next spring, shortly there after. I will be sure to let you know when it is available for purchase! I hope that you will enjoy reading it as much as I have enjoyed writing it. It is quite a story, considering that I started BK2HK when I was a young woman of 30 and here I am 52! I virtually seemed to have spent my entire adult life promoting kindness!

It has been, and still is well worth it.

Until the next time,

Her Only Calming Source – Master Sgt. John Gebhardt

Air Force Chief Master Sgt. John Gebhardt, of the 332md Expeditionary Medical Group at Balad, Iraq, cradles a young girl as they both sleep in the hospital. The girl’s entire family was executed by insurgents: the killers shot her in the head as well. The girl received treatment at the U.S. military hospital in Balad, but cried and moans often. According to nurses at the facility, Gebhardt is the only one who can calm down the girl, so he has spent the last several nights holding her while they both sleep in a chair.
