Super Quote Sunday - October 24th

Ever heard of the ripple effect?

Today's quote reminds me of that.

"What affects one directly affects all indirectly."
~Martin Luther King, Jr.


I heard this quote in college while watching a documentary about Mr. King. I thought it was powerful then, and I still consider it powerfully true.

Consider the chain of events that occurs after someone feels something, then acts on it, then affects others. The course is set in motion. And it goes on and on.

Sometimes, things like this have gruesome effects, while other times the outcomes are positive.

The truth is, we're all rubbing off on each other. Yes, you and I have the ability to affect someone through something as simple as the energy we bring into the room.

Thought For the Day: It would do us good to frequently examine our actions, words and behavior. Whether we like it or not, through everyday encounters, we're affecting our surroundings in one way or another. Yikes, that's a lot of pressure!
