RIPPLES: a free weekly dose of inspiration
[see bottom for subscription information]version 2.06 [Monday, February 7, 2000]©2000 Stone Soup Seminars
Don’t forget this week’s PONDER below: It is IMPORTANT!
Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness.
Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.
original source: Scott Adams
It is from numberless
diverse acts of courage and belief
that human history is shaped.
Each time a man stands up for an ideal,
or acts to improve the lot of others,
or strikes out against injustice,
he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope,
and crossing each other from
a million different centers of energy and daring,
those ripples build a current
that can sweep down the mightiest walls
of oppression and resistance.

From the moment Ripples was first conceived over a year ago, the concept
included a belief that each reader had the potential, and indeed an
obligation, to continue making positive changes in the world.
There are over 2,700 of us now, and it is time to start flexing our
potential as a group! In the coming weeks and months, we will unveil THE
RIPPLES PROJECT as a means to demonstrate the power of individual kindness.
I am going to call on each of you to make a commitment of time, energy
and/or spare change to actively create some ripples and to TELL US ABOUT
Let’s start with a challenge: pass along this issue of Ripples to ONE
close friend and invite them to sign up. In order to create an audible
roar, we need to increase the number of people who are committed to making
Ripples. By the end of March when we begin rolling out THE RIPPLES PROJECT
we need over 5,000 people from around the country (world?) signed on. So
if each of us finds ONE more subscriber we’ll be set!
C’mon, I DARE YOU!
