Today is World Thinking Day. It was created by the Girl Scouts/ Girl Guides in the UK to invite everyone to think beyond their neighborhood, state or even nation, but rather consider the world as their home. Celebrate our differences, yet also celebrate our similarities.
It’s purely coincidental it happens to fall during the Olympics, but I can’t think of a more suitable happy accident.
As you watch the last few days of the Olympics think about all the athletes returning home, and what that looks like and means for each of them. Think about the areas of the planet that don’t have the same access to clean water or even enough food to support their families. Think about how you can be a better citizen of the world. What better thing could there be to think about?
