Not Just Today


Today is World Kindness Day. A day that was born when a collection of humanitarian groups came together on November 13, 1997 and made a “Declaration of Kindness.” Donating books to Riley’s Red Wagon Book Swap, collecting food and/or clothes for our local homeless community, or volunteering somewhere are all great ways to celebrate. However, pledging to commit just one act of kindness is no less worthwhile: hold the door open for a stranger, smile at people you pass by on the sidewalk, let your partner have control of the TV remote for the evening, help someone carry their groceries, buy the person in line behind you at Starbucks their coffee. It doesn’t have to be a grand gesture; it doesn’t have to cost a thing. And it doesn’t have to be just today. Why do we need some kind of proclamation telling us to be kind?! Shouldn’t we behave this way every day?! Be kind every day. It will give you the warm fuzzies, and you will probably make someone’s day…
