We are all aware of powerful Hurricane Sandy’s disaster on the East coast of America. The extensive 50 billion dollars in damage and aftermath … death, business/homes destroyed, flooding, limited power/supplies and NYC shut down.

I saw this photo and it made me stop and think how much we take power for granted. How much we rely on electricity every minute of every day. How much we should help others when possible.

This photo also reminded me of the song “Reach Out and Touch (Somebody’s Hand)”  the debut solo single for singer Diana Ross released in April 1970.

If you see an old friend on the street
And he’s down
Remember his shoes could fit your feet

Try a little kindness you’ll see
It’s something that comes very naturally
We can change things if we start giving

Reach out and touch
Somebody’s hand
Make this world a better place
If you can

We all have the power to help or simply say something nice to someone, why not start today. Sometimes a pleasant smile and cheerful hello – how are you, thank you, love you will do more than most people know, words and actions are very powerful.

Until next time and more Sweet Conclusions

    So true – love that song too – my heart aches for all those out east who have lost loved ones, and have lost everything they own! Just so devastating!
