You are very welcome DB and it was my honour to play a small part in today's Tweet-a-Thon, and this experience today was most humbling even after being involved with NPOs for such a long time. It's such a great feeling to make a difference in the lives of other people and to be a part of something that is greater than ourselves; lifting up others!

Danny -- Thank you for sharing this post on a very relevant & timely topic. And I have enjoyed reading the comments & learning from them. The examples you wrote of are all too often demonstrated everyday. Many of us, myself included, try to be active listeners & pay attention to what is being said by others. But have also been guilty of cutting off others as they speak. We can commit to learning from these transgressions, especially when our communications get interrupted & are not given focused attention. As we can see, the lack of focused attention is affecting relationships of all levels (personal, professional, etc.). So it is then up each of us as individuals to make a choice as to whether we want relationships & connections with human beings or machines. The old adage of 'treat people the way you want to be treated' will always hold true. The positive vibe & energy that is exchanged from one interaction has a rippling affect to others afterwards. It is indeed a gift & a blessing to be seen, listened to and heard in the here & now.
