When there is a disaster or emergency like people come together, lend a helping hand.
But is that the only time we need to get tighter?
Humans seem to come together only on face of a tragedy, it’s then the lending hand comes. This experience is often a life changing one for those is welling to turn helpers or care givers. We feel like we are finally doing something relevant, or important. We feel more connected to the people we help and humanity in general.
We find that it is easier to be happy when we are motivated in an effort to make the world a better place considering the benefits of kind gestures it is surprising we do not devote more of our lives to serve people. This could be because a small action of kindness does not create wave energy.
Maybe it is time we shifted little bit from our sports and movie icons and lauded the real heroes.
