Uplifting Humanity: Social Constructs
Kim Roland’s “Mutual Deliverance” offers a very special message that emerges out of acts of human kindness. A single act of human kindness reproduces a feeling of love that initially, may have been intended for the receiver, but is often miraculously returned to the initiator. In the end, both are touched by what started out as a single act.
This phenomenon often happens in human collaborations. We experience a dignity and a healing in the exchange of kindness. We think we are leaning-in to help others, but find that we also experience a mutual value that is given back to us. Its like a boomerang effect that multiplies from a single act of kindness.
“I personally have experienced this many times. In my drawing, I capture this love exchange between my son and a young boy he set-out to help. In the end, my son felt that the young boy had touched his life more profoundly than any way he could ever image helping the young boy.” –Kim Rowlands
We should be inspired by the fact that the “Mutual Deliverance” we have received by those who have gone before us to help make a better world, can be by paying an act of kindness forward.
As we continue to embrace our differences and value diversity, we can uplift humanity; one act of kindness at a time.

“I am so privileged to be exhibiting at, and having a piece auctioned at, this timely event. This is a great initiative in bringing awareness to those whose shoulders we stand on the ripple effects of their efforts.
It is rare that people are recognized and celebrated for the effects of their ripple on society. I love Ripple Hall Of Fame and how it brings awareness to what has worked in the past so that we can duplicate the best parts of our past.
