One of the kindest individuals I know is my co-worker and friend, Kelli. She is completely amazing in terms of the support she gives to her friends, family, and/or students. She is always willing to lift someone's spirits in the face of adversity. Her ability to rally around a person in need and "call in the troops" for support is infallible. Many individuals have been able to bounce back and recover from setbacks much quicker and happier due to Kelli's steadfast and compassionate nature. As a friend, family member, and co-worker, Kelli is a fountain of support and her impact of kindness works as a ripple effect in the lives of those she touches.
