One could be excused for believing the world is upside down at the moment. On the campaign stump, Donald Trump is now invoking the name of George Washington to defend protectionist designs underpinned by crude anti-immigrant slurs.

To the surprise (and disappointment) of many other travelers, we have flown with our infant since she was eight weeks old. At 22 months, she has flown more than 100,000 miles to 15 countries on four continents -- some of them several times -- and (I will get hate mail for this) often in first and business class.

WATCH: Being Kind (What the World Really Needs Now...)

Read More: Kindness, Respect, Courtesy, Civility, Andy Williams, Among Others, Sang: “What the World Needs Now Is Love, Sweet Love.” While I Am Certainly Trying to Help Cultivate That, I’D Say That, First, What the World Really Needs Now Is Kindness. Courtesy. Civility. Mutual Respect. It May Take Awhile Before People Are Able to Feel Real Love for One Another. but in the Meantime, Even Though We Are People With Differing Opinions, Isn’T It Possible That We Could Be Mature People With Differing Opinions…? It Amazes Me to See How Viscously People Will Jump on Someone Online – Even When the Person Has Only Made a Simple Comment or Request. And, I Stand by My Belief That People Don’T Do This Because They Are Bad… We Are All Doing the Best We Can Based on Our Programming. It’S Just Unfortunate That More and More We Are Being Programmed to Accept This Kind of Behavior… Which Tends to Lead T, It Has a Cost – for Everyone Involved. Since Everything Is Energy, And We Are All Connected, Every Such Attack We Make Is an Attack on Everyone – Ourselves Included. It’S a Pretty Sure Way to Put the Kibosh on Any Positive Manifestations, Or at Least Slow Them Down. but by the Same Principle… Every Act of Kindness We Perform Is and Act of Kindness Toward Everyone… Ourselves Included. :) No Doubt You’Ve Heard the Story of the Two Dogs Fighting in Each Person’S Heart (or Wolves, Depending on the Version). One Is Love, The Other Is Hate, And They Are Always Fighting. Which One Wins? the One You Feed the Most. This Holiday Season, Prepare a Feast for the Loving Dog. and Perhaps the Hateful Dog, Out of a Desire to Enjoy the Meal, Will Be Trained to Love as Well… and We’Ll Put an End to Internal Dog Fighting. and Maybe the Absence of Internal Fighting Will Cultivate a World With No External Fighting. Let’S Find Out, Shall We…? the Dalai Lama Has Said, "Be Kind Whenever Possible. It Is Always Possible." Now, I Won’T Argue That It’S Always Easy… and May Seem Downright Impossible at Times. but if We Are Honest With Ourselves - and Keep Clearing the Fear and Anger Inside Ourselves That Make Kindness Seem Difficult – Those Times Are Fewer and Farther Betw, Let’S Keep Challenging Ourselves to Be Kind (Civil, Courteous, Respectful…) – Even When It Is Seemingly Impossible. ----------------------------------------------------- I Hope This Will Help:
