Baked Ziti and Kindness

I saw wonderful examples of humanity and kindness during the Olympics.  Many times I witnessed a veteran athlete consoling a rookie athlete when the grasp of an Olympic medal was no longer in reach.  But my favorite moment of simple humanity and kindness  was during the Women’s 5000 meter race.  USA’S Abbey DiAgostino and New Zealand’s Nikki Hamblin collided and fell on the track with both athlete’s suffering injuries .  When Nikki stopped and helped Abbey up, I knew from that one single act of kindness the heart of Nikki Hamblin.  I could see the pain on Nikki’s face from her own injuries as she helped her opponent to her feet.  It refreshed my heart to watch that moment.  There is so much ugly right now everywhere around us.   It is out of control ugly.  I want to see more kindness.  I want to see more respect.  I want to see more Nikki Hamblin’s rise up and show character, respect and kindness.  I am so thankful I witnessed that moment live, as it happened.  It brought tears to my eyes and a smile to my face
