Agents of Compassion,
 
We have critical information for you from Compassion HQ…

If you took a journey through the story of your DNA - the 20,000+ genes that have been passed down from your ancestors and determine in part who you are - what mysteries do you think you might reveal about yourself?

Your DNA contains traces of all the life that has come before you over the past 3.8 billion years, from the time the first signs of life arrived on our planet. You share DNA with bees, flowers, trees, whales, spiders, fish, primates, dinosaurs, and of course, all human beings!

However, in today’s world, Agents, you may notice how human beings have a habit of dividing each other up based on what we look like, what gender we are, and where we come from. We are taught this person is white and this person is black, he is from Saudi Arabia and she is from China. I am this and that, we are taught, which makes me different than they and them.

Yet interestingly, only a very, very small percentage of our DNA determines what we physically look like… characteristics such as our skin color, the type of hair we have, our eye color, height, and even if we are male or female! The rest of our DNA - 99.9% of it - is actually identical to all other people! This is the portion of DNA that makes sure we are a human being, with a healthy heart, lungs, brain, vocal chords, and all the rest!

In fact, according to our biology, there really is no such thing as race. Each of us, whether we look brown, black, or white, are actually of mixed ancestry, with relatives coming from countries and continents across the globe. Our DNA reveals to us that all human beings are actually related to one another, meaning we each share common human ancestors in the ancient past, making us all, literally, family!

 
Welcome to the Global Unity Games:
Tomorrow Together!

Agents, the point of the Global Unity Games is to reunite this one human family to create Global Unity in our lifetime. We define “Global Unity" as a world of people with different backgrounds, cultures, nationalities and belief systems committed to living, learning, playing and working well together.

We live in a “global village” connected via a “global network”. Can we unite the separate and fragmented parts of ourselves, each other, and our world into a resilient, powerful whole that is rooted in love and compassion and the knowledge of our unity in diversity?  

 
Is this our “global destiny”? Let’s see. Game on!

Each day during the Global Unity Games, Agents Oprah Winfrey and Louie Schwartzberg will share with us a short video offering a journey into the science, mystery, and power of revealing gratitude in our lives. Increasing gratitude is a proven pathway back from the disconnection we may feel from ourselves, our planet, and each other! 

Humanity’s greatest gifts are the building blocks of gratitude, and we will be exploring one of these gifts each day during the Games. These great gifts are mindfulness, creativity, wonder, generosity, happiness, patience, connection, courage, purpose, and love.

Agents, today we will begin with the topic of Gratitude itself. Achieving Global Unity starts within ourselves! Watch this video and share your experience on the Compassion Report Map.

UN's Sustainable Development Goals

 

To achieve Global Unity in our lifetime the nations of the world, through the United Nations, have set global goals to end poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and tackle climate change by 2030.

Each day of the Global Unity Games we will highlight one of these goals that intend to transform our world through international cooperation.

Agents, It's Your Turn!

 
Given what we are learning about Gratitude and drawing inspiration from the Champions of Compassion, your mission today is to engage in the world in a way that you feel moves the Human Family closer to Global Unity! If you feel called to, share with your friends the inspiring work of Points of Light!

As you reveal the power of gratitude in your life, remember to report your experiences on the Compassion Report Map to inspire others around the world.
Good luck, Agents!
