Been thinking about things we, as human beings, can do to make things better for each other. Kindness is a good place to start.
I don’t often sit at my desk at the start of a day with tears in my eyes. But as I was thinking about this blogpost, I did a quick search on Youtube for ‘acts of kindness’ and ‘acts of kindness ripple effect’.
Whoa. All of them. This one. And this one.
“Shall we make a new rule of life from tonight: always try to be a little kinder than is necessary?” -JM Barrie.
I wonder what a day would be like if 10 people in a school, kids, staff, community, parents, made it a point, a conscious effort to do an act of kindness. I wonder what that ripple effect in the school would be. Would it stay in the walls of the school? Would it go beyond the school to the community?
“Somewhere there’s a stranger who was kind to someone just because you were kind to them.”
