10 Seconds of Silence
This acceptance speech by Fred Rogers as a great example of taking intentional effort to honor the contributions of those who have helped us along our way.
“All of us have special ones who loved us into being. Would you just take, along with me, 10 seconds to think of the people who have helped you become who you are, those who cared about you and wanted what was best for you in life. 10 seconds, I’ll watch the time. Whomever you’ve been thinking about, how pleased they must be to know the difference you feel they have made.”
Take some time to think of the ones who have helped you to become the person you are today.
From Aspiring Humanitarian, Relando Thompkins-Jones, MSW, LLMSW
