Day 73

Today I learned about the horrific treatment of people in a now-closed psychiatric hospital in New York, from the perspectives of former patients and workers (suffering inflicted by humans on humans always makes me wonder, where is the compassion? Where is the empathy?), and about a very interesting and controversial view that science is dogmatic.

Today I meditated for 15 minutes.

Today I acted kindly by giving a coupon for a coffee-shop beverage to a random lady in the line-up, and by smiling to and speaking with every homeless person I passed on the streets.

“There is more hunger for love and appreciation in this world than for bread.”

-Mother Teresa
