The Butterfly Effect…Does It Apply To Kindness? 

Have been enormously touched by the story of Chris Rosati. I first learned of this story from Steven Hartman of CBS News.  Steve’s show “On The Road Again” has featured Chris Rosati, a man from North Carolina who has been diagnosed with ALS.  ALS, also known as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Once diagnosed with the disease, Chris developed an inspiring point of view on the way he wants to spend the rest of his life.  He wants to help as many people as he possibly can.

The Butterfly Effect, put simply, is the idea a very small change in initial conditions can create a significantly different outcome…Edward Lorenz coined this theory  and speculated that a hurricane may have its roots in the faraway flapping of a butterfly’s wings.  The second segment, shown above, shows Chris and and his thoughts on the butterfly effect and how it applies to kindness.

I hope this inspires you the way the same way it did me.
