Tell Us Your Kindness Story
Choose Kindness

(This story was written by a student at our school for our Random Acts of Kindness week.) "I am sensitive and helpful, but sometimes I can be not so attentive to everything. For instance, I don’t notice that I perform kind acts for my friends, relatives, and even strangers. However, I realize that I share kindness everywhere when people need it. What is my secret? I don’t make my actions public. My kindness is in the details; I do small things for everyone. If I use a coffee mug in cafes, I wash it when I'm done. If I see a stranger needs coins for the cashier, I give them to him. If I hear some doors in my school are squeaking, I oil them. You would reply: “Many people use this method. Why do you think it’s very unique?” Yes, I agree. This a method of acting kindly that millions of people use. You may not realize it, but little by little you begin to change your mindset to looking to help others more often. Look at family, friends, and citizens in your city. Someone directly wants or needs the help of others. Then make a choice to help the person or not."
