How do you spread loving kindness throughout your day?
It's the sixth installment of the We Are the World Blogfest (#WATWB), and this story shows how simple it is to spread loving kindness through empathy and taking a few minutes to share your own experience with someone. I especially love how the young man acted in a highly respectful way, too. He knew how to be light in darkness.
It's the ultimate tough thing - traveling to a funeral - and this woman was flying to bury her son. It's also a tough thing to know what to say and how to say it to comfort or reassure someone in that situation. Somehow the young man's heart knew, as I think is true for all of us. Our deepest hearts know.

As Ludwig van Beethoven wrote on the first page of the manuscript to his Missa Solemnis: "Von Herzen - Moege es wieder - zu Herzen gehn!" (From heart -- may it again -- to heart go!")
