    I have been doing silent blessings for a very long time;  it feels like a very comforting practice.  Whenever I drive by an animal that has been killed by traffic, I always say a blessing.  I also bless the people I notice that seem to need a little extra help and support;  I bless everyone at accident scenes, and the people who show up to help.  When we have forest fires, I bless the trees, the animals and the fire fighters and anyone else that is involved.  In this way, giving a silent blessing from the heart seems to be a way I can contribute something positive to any situation.
