Dear Cake,


6. The Law of Conscientious Action


Simple; it's the golden rule you learned in kindergarten.


Do to others as you would have done to you.


"Cold silence has a tendency to atrophy any sense of compassion between supposed lovers, between supposed brothers."

-Maynard


Oh, Cake. What another weird day. You stopped to get yourself a drink this morning on the way to drop the kids off at school. When you held out the money to pay the worker said no charge & smiled. The words are you serious stumbled out of your mouth before you could gather your senses & I'm pretty sure your face had genuine shock written all over it. She smiled again & told you to have a good day.


You made it maybe 10 ft & started sobbing, the kids staring in bewilderment. You didn't hide your tears. You let them witness what kindness can do to a person. You explained that they were tears of joy & you were thankful and happy that kind people like that lady existed.


Who knows if they understood the message, but their mother sure did.
