Positive thoughts (in 30 second chunks)

I have been responding to blogs about things that can change the world. One in particular (click here) is about a challenge to come up with 30 things that take 30 seconds each. The lists that others had come up with captured many of the things I might include as well.
I posted my addition - which is to make a positive comment about another religion, race or culture - especially to a child. The idea is to reduce negative thoughts about things that are different or unknown and to influence positive concepts. What if we all did this for 30 seconds every day?!
This has got me thinking about an after school program I put together (with the help of a friend) a couple of years ago - called "Explorers of the World". I don't have the time today, but I will post some info on that shortly - I'm actually going to put some thought into a separate site for just that topic.
More to come . . .

I loved your addition -- it's a wonderful item to put into practice.

I'm looking forward to hearing more about the Explorers of the World program -- sounds intriguing. I'm in major support of anything that provides students, particularly in the U.S., with positive experiences that open their minds and introduces them to other cultures.

The program you put together sounds rather interesting. I can't wait to hear more about it!
