saving her in the nick of time from being run over.
The old woman is eternally grateful, and when she
returns to her nursing home, she tells one of the nurses her
This nurse has had a very bad day so far, and
really needs to hear a story that demonstrates the basic
goodness in us all. It brightens up the rest of her day,

daughter gets on a computer, and before you know it bytes of
those love-joy particles that Malika gave the old woman are
travelling along the information super-highway to the world.
On and on it goes, travelling by touch, by voice, by
pen, by screen. One little love-joy particle sent out by
one person multiplies a hundred-fold by the end of the day.

. . ." say, instead, for this is indeed more true, "I do
have an impact on everyone . . ."
