Started by Gavin Larkin, RUOK? Day is a reminder to all of us to ask someone we know who might be struggling with life, if they are OK?
While RUOK? Day is a once a year event, asking someone if they are OK is not — it’s something we can and should do every day.
To me RUOK? speaks to the power in each of us. When you understand that what most people really, really want is simply to feel good about themselves, and when you realize that with just a few well-chosen words [e.g. RUOK?] you can help virtually anyone on the planet instantly achieve this, you begin to realize just how simple life is, and how powerful you are.
Thanks Gavin, and thanks to all of you who show your care by asking the question ‘RUOK?’
