It’s 6:25AM in the Atlanta airport as I stand in a never ending line to go through the TSA checkpoint before boarding my flight to LAX.
My flight just began boarding and at the rate this line is moving, I’m starting to worry I’ll miss my flight.
I stop thinking about myself for a second and start scanning the faces of people around who are in the same situation or worse, which reminds me how you can never really know what others are going through.
As a Martial Arts academy it is routine for an instructor to award students push ups for tardiness. One day I did and then asked the student why he was late. He had come from his aunt’s funeral… Oops.. Did I learn a lesson that day.
With Thanksgiving around the corner, let’s exercise kindness and understanding for others. You never know how far it will go.
