The flag is back at half staff. It was raised over Memorial Day weekend, so the honor procession could lower the flag to half staff for their ceremony.
This is an unusual One-Liner Wednesday for me, in that I don’t think a backstory is necessary (however, staying in character, there’s a bit of an after-story). My one-liner for this week is in the photo below. Maddie and I discovered this little watering hole on our walk.
If you take a look at the garden banner and, particularly the lamppost, you will realize that this act of kindness wasn’t entirely random. These are dog lovers.
I was going to pair this post with “Kind and Generous” by Natalie Merchant. When I hear the word ‘kindness’ this song comes to mind. Of course, that’s because I really like Natalie Merchant’s voice. On second thought, the songs lyrics really didn’t match with the nature of this act. The song in the Sesame Street video struck me as being more appropriate. Maybe it’s time we learn like children. The introduction to this video says:
“Sesame Street (with Tori Kelly)
K is for kindness! It’s a simple word, it’s true, but it’s amazing what a word can do! Sing along with Tori Kelly and the rest of the Sesame Street gang as they sing a song all about kindness. How will you be kind today?”
