Facebook is an overwhelming aspect of social media. Timeline’s are inundated with nonsense, Farmville and game requests are sent at alarming rates and too much personal information is given away like candy at Halloween. But every so often a little gem of humanity seeps through the cracks and makes me appreciate the sharing of information.
The video below is one of those rare gems. I watched it twice because the message really plucked some emotional strings in the orchestra of my life. I have always been a firm believer in treating others as you wish to be treated, in paying forward a show of altruism and allowing others to benefit from your tenderness and understanding.
Every action in life creates a ripple effect. Whether that ripple effect is as visible to the naked eye as a drop of water in a pond, or is so infinitesimal that it is unseen by the human eye, there is always a reaction. A little bit can go a long way and that ripple may spread further than you could ever imagine.
I hope you will take the three minutes to watch this video created by a Thai insurance company. Its message is heart-warming, emotional and eerily accurate. One drop of human kindness could change the tides in so many oceans.
