I was sitting in the front of the bus with a few dozen soft yellow and pink gerbera daisies cradled in my lap.
As I gazed at these living works of art, I marveled at their beauty.
I have similar thoughts every week when I go to the open market in Tel Aviv and buy flowers to give away to strangers on the street.
This simple act of kindness has become a movement called Give A Flower, Get A Smile. The giving of a flower is used as a tool to connect and smile with other human beings.
