I recently found this quote on the website of Margaret Wheatly (author), "Human kindness manifests only in relationship." I immediately followed every link, listened to her podcasts, read her articles, and went to Chapters to buy her book. Time well spent!

I believe however, that her quote has it backwards. I would suggest that it is perhaps more true to suggest, "Human kindness manifests relationships." The dakbands are evidence that kindness creates relationships where none existed prior to the kindness. When we reach out and offer a complete stranger a dakband (or two) for an act of kindness we witnessed, we now have a connection, a relationship and our humanity expands. We enter into community. Live Kindly. Band Together.
