Recently, a mother living in the US posted a news report on Facebook saying that a company had just launched a bulletproof blanket for students because of the increasing number of shootings at US schools.

Whatever you want to reap, sow!

And just a few days later, a new shooting happened, targeting a social center for people with disabilities.

Concluding about the risk of being shot in the US, the mother I mentioned above concluded: `Should I take my child back to Vietnam?`

However, if we open the pages of newspapers in Vietnam, what will we see?

For a beautiful life: sow whatever you want to reap!

I remember reading somewhere: “When do you start raising a child?

I won’t ask `what did our predecessors do 100 years ago so that we can have the life we have now`, but I will ask `what do we do, so that our children and grandchildren can have a good life?`

Most of a person’s life will be lived with Others – Strangers, in places where initially he was always a Stranger.

So parents, in my opinion, must be the best people in the world.

Who will love any Stranger I encounter because my child will be a Stranger to someone.

Those who will sow the seeds of Kindness so that our children can enjoy the sweet fruit and shade of the tree.

Those who will take care of the roses and uproot the baobab trees like the Little Prince (Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s character) to protect the rose and his little planet.

Let me tell you about the Little Prince.

Let’s devote our energy and attention to watering the roses and pulling up the baobab trees, and we will have a beautiful life.

Compassion is a Verb – so says Master Thich Nhat Hanh.

Complaining about baobab trees does not kill them.

Just live the way we want the world to be.

If you think of society as a field, you should sow whatever you want to reap!
