A Cup of Kindness

Kindness in the face of adversity speaks volumes about a person’s character.  I for one would love to see the presidential candidates treat each other with more kindness.

cup-of-kindnessThis election displays fundamental weaknesses for the entire world to see.  It is filled with destructive criticism and the filth clings to the candidates like the aftermath of a cafeteria food fight.  Except, it isn’t a food fight.  Instead, it seems more like warfare and war leaves a path of destruction in its wake that could take generations to heal.

I don’t know about you, but I prefer civility to the brutality of criticism any day.  No one ever improves from criticism, because it stunts growth.  Either they fling it back tenfold or forever quit the playing field.

Let’s bring civility back in vogue.  When in doubt, make love, not war.

Peace out,

As long as Robert can remember, he wanted to be a writer. Like many young people who are called to a creative life, he had to contend with well-meaning friends and family members who discouraged it. While Robert spent most of his career as a successful attorney, he never forgot his dream. In the meantime, he pursued many other interests and was fortunate enough to have some amazing adventures. One of those interests was martial arts. He spent many years studying and teaching Chinese Internal Martial Arts. Robert promised his teacher he would someday write that book he always wanted to write and began to develop a story idea that pitted a young lawyer/martial artist against a powerful pharmaceutical company in a conflict over a miracle cure. The hero wants to insure the cure is freely available to everyone, but powerful enemies want to suppress it. The Nostrum Conspiracy is Robert’s second book. His first book, Naked Tao, breaks a few rules.

Robert has been blessed with an amazing life and it just keeps getting better. He lives in Louisville with his beautiful wife and children. "Bad Bob" is a tongue-in-cheek nick name bestowed upon him by his co-workers when he showed up at his law firm one day on a new Harley. Robert is a martial arts master and has taught over 600 students.
