An excerpt from Brene Brown’s book, ‘Daring Greatly’
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
There was a very special boy in Charlotte that has touched the hearts of many. Although his life ended very early to a battle with cancer, Grier Christenbury's playful spirit is alive and well. He is working through others throughout the city to help win the battle and raise money for the fight against cancer in children, which is the number one disease killer in children in the US.
Do we give for the right reasons? Is it to touch a life without any expectation of anything in return? Selfless giving is the purest form of love there is and is understood by every human being on the planet. It only takes a small selfless act of kindness or compassion to touch someone.
