During January 12-18 local businesses will have Random Acts of Kindness Jars. Write down the compassionate things you see others doing. They will be collected and posted on Lopez Rocks.

Be on the look-out for kindness -- and share it with others. What a great way to honor all the compassionate individuals we have on Lopez!!

This is one of the January Compassion Lopez Events.

Compassion Lopez is a group of individuals and organizations dedicated to strengthening compassion on Lopez. There has been lots of tension in our country and on Lopez with recent elections. The goal is to bring our community together around shared values, and learn more about what is important to each other.

Activities are being planned to offer fun and creative ways to amplify the existing compassion, build upon what is working in our Lopez Community, inspire us to get out and meet new people, increase our understanding about each other, bring more compassion to our daily lives, and improve everyone's well-being.

Events in January 2018 will be our second set of community wide activities. We will be honoring Martin Luther King, Jr., with a theme of Social Justice. We are inspired by his efforts and words which are powerful tools to change the world using his endless wisdom, insight, and understanding - guiding all of us to work for what we believe in.

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.";

"Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.";

"Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?";

"The time is always right to do what is right."

Come join us at these event on January 12-15, and 18.
