School’s out Friday

I dare you to watch this and not be affected. My heart was in my mouth when I watched this homeless man’s reaction to what he thought was a generous gift. Honestly, I was praying that this wasn’t going to turn into some cruel prank where they took the money away from him.

Thankfully, my fears were unfounded. The follow up video demonstrates just what Internet communities are capable of when people are affected by the plight of others. There is good in the world; we just need to find ways to harness it.

I have been chasing my tail these last couple of weeks. I’ve presented four sessions at three conferences, two of them Keynotes, in the last 10 days. That’s pretty darn busy by my standards. The energy levels are fading fast right now and I’ll be seeking the solace of my bed as soon as this is posted!

Enjoy your weekend. Uncommonly good weather is visiting Melbourne this weekend, and I, for one, will be making the most of it. Here’s to sunny day days in the backyard with a good cuppa. 🙂
