A single act creates a miracle

Watching the USAirways Flight 320 crash landing into the Hudson River yesterday, I am humbled and awed by the sheer miracle of it all. That not one person was significantly injured is truly incredible and a life changing event for all those involved.

This moment of heroic action is a gift to us today because it reaffirms that one person can change the world--just ask the 155 passengers whose worlds were significantly improved because of the courage of Captain Chesley 'Sully' Sullenberger III. Each of us has the opportunity to reach out and touch the lives of those with whom we come in contact...however great or small. These individual acts do change the world.

As we move into another weekend, take a moment to be aware of your life and your habits. Consider how you could make small changes in your relationships, in you lifestyle and your habits. Life is full of miracles if we are willing to participate and be aware! Have a great weekend!
