Your Mission, should you choose to accept it:

Smile, make eye contact and greet each person you see. If you know them greet them by name. If they are strangers to you, greet them warmly.

Words like "Hello," Good Morning," Good Evening" and "How are you" cost us nothing.

When someone shares these words, or similar words, with you, do not look at them with suspicion, but rather respond in a warm and friendly tone.

All of us are missing basic human contact, and if ever there was a time to love your neighbor, it is now...

We're all in this together...
