Days of Kindness 2015
It’s that time of year again. The annual Eastern Days of Kindness is one of my favorite community events at EWU. This week-long event challenges us all to discover ways to affirm our students and colleagues, to practice mindfulness and gratitude, and to actively engage and “be in community” with one another.
Days of Kindness began as a campus response to the tragedy at Sandy Hook and after three years has been woven into the fabric of EWU. This year, we have set a goal of involving 2,000 students, staff and faculty in conducting 10,000 acts of kindness. I believe that EWU is capable of this and more.
This week reminds me of Mother Teresa’s quote, “We cannot all do great things, but we can do small things with great love.” It is in these small things, these small moments, these small acts that a more just and peaceful world is born.
