“Be Kind and Carry On” the cover story on the 8/13/17 issue of Parade Magazine on Princess Diana’s Legacy of Kindness is such an inspiration, especially in these very troubling times where we see unkindness, and much worse, at every turn.

Princess Diana is quoted as saying of her sons, “I want them to have an understanding of people’s emotions, people’s insecurities, people’s distress and people’s hopes and dreams.”

What a wonderful example for all parents. Giving our children that gift of understanding requires that we acquire it, first, for ourselves …a major job of work, and we must make a further step back: understand our own emotions before we try to understand others’ emotions.
