"Just Grab A Friend And Give A Hug"

Today, the Girl's School at the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas had a "secret special guest" as part of their annual celebration. 

Brother Nimo took the 5-hour round-trip drive to share one hour of pure joy and magic with the hundred bubbly students through Empty Hands music. 

At one point, Nimo asked the girls, "Where can you practice kindness in your life?" A kindergartner's hand shot up. She said, "In your heart!"

As Nimo invited everyone to join the final song, this happened



The youngest girls, sitting closest to Nimo, spontaneously formed a group-hug circle (actually two), swaying to the rhythm of "Being Kind", giggling and waving. 

As tears rushed down my face, my heart could only hear one song: there is hope! there is hope! :)

Thank you, thank you!

    Just met with Awakin Call volunteer who shared with me that his sister's name is Asha which means hope. Hope is in the air. So lovely to see the circle of Aloha, Joy, and Movement. Thanks you, BrotherZ
