Start a Movement

. Friday, September 12

“If we will decide to encourage rather than criticize, if we will make kind acts and thoughtfulness a part of our daily lives, that if for only one day of the year we will experiment by intentionally avoiding cynicism and meanness and choose instead encouragement, that we as individuals and also as a nation will change and in changing we will change our world.”
--Andrew Baker, organizer of the National Day of Encouragement and executive director of the Encouragement Foundation, a group that raises the awareness about the benefits of encouraging others.

It is a great idea thought up by high school students last year and it has caught on in quite a few states already. I hope it catches on more and more!
