Thought of the week: Out of many, One.

Objective: To see that everyone more or less has the same struggles, pain, and joys in life and to be moved to help one another.

Activity: Listen to someone’s story this week. Listen attentively and observe yourself

with any judgement you are making. Remember that even if their story has nothing in

common with yours or you don’t understand it, it is still real for them. Focus on the

aspects that you have in common.
