[ TOP 10 FINALIST] A story of how, in this ocean of kindness, we are all droplets capable of causing a ripple. Ripples have a way of changing the world. This is my entry for the Southwest Storytellers: On The Rise writing contest sponsored by Southwest Airlines. I've been proudly obsessed with SWA for well over a decade. Their people-oriented way of conducting business not only makes them a premier travel experience, but also an epitome of human kindness. The warmth, altruism and compassion displayed by the employees and the corporation makes for an unparalleled encounter each and every flight. Therefore it is an honor to combine my two biggest passions and compete in this writing contest.
