Defiant Kindness

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Defiant kindness
doesn't ignore injustice, it
chooses compassion as its weapon.
It disrupts with love, challenges
with empathy, and fights
for change with grace.

The light at the
end of the tunnel is not
an illusion, the tunnel is.
Anna Quindlen

God put each person
here for a purpose. Ronald Reagan

The world needs your kindness,
even when it seems like
it doesn't deserve it.
Choose love, even
when it's hard.
Be the light, even
when it's dark.

True kindness isn't passive;
it's a fierce, unwavering
commitment to doing what's
right, even when it's hard.
Amanda Palmer


Love You,
Cloudia & Pixie

High rise buildings on fire. We see the same sun reflections on building here.

I love the first quote about defiant kindness. It looks like Pixie is all worn out after a morning of being defiantly kind.

I trust that photo with the bright flares was caused by sun reflection. It looks frighteningly like that building is on fire!

Cloudia said...

Thanks friends!

The light at the end of the tunnel quote is something to ponder. We hear it all the time but never thought of it that way. Great quotes as always.

Great shot of the Rainbow ... it looks like you are up high almost even with the rainbow when you took this picture. I wish I could see the illusionary "light at the end of the tunnel". There are so many things that need fixing right now and I am not sure that kindness is the answer, as the sources of the pain don't know the meaning of kindness and are cold hearted and indifferent. But Pixie is anything but passive in her kind hearted ways. Another wonderful post, Claudia ... Thank you :)
