I am so excited to be starting this! Kids, please share your stories, pictures, videos, etc. We all want to hear about how you are celebrating your kind acts and the acts of others. Parents & teachers, tell us about your child’s good deeds. No act of kindness is too small, compassion and caring are as big as the universe. I already shared a couple of my own stories with you. Enjoy!
We had just finished lunch at a cozy little diner when WHAM! It sounded like a car had hit the window. We rushed out and saw a poor fellow lying dazed on the sidewalk. He had tripped and fallen and really shaken himself up. A bunch of us from the restaurant were there seeing what we could do. We helped him slowly get up and we chatted a bit while he got his bearings. That was quite a fall! But he was fine, just a little shaken, and we helped him on with his coat and he thanked us with a smile and turned to go. But wait! I spotted the culprit! One of his shoes was untied. We walked away once we saw that he was OK. I felt really wonderful that we were able to be there for this guy. He was extremely grateful — and so was I for the opportunity to show my kindness.
I am an afterschool teacher who throws a party for my students on the last day of each semester. I do this to celebrate their accomplishments. We plan as a class, and decide collectively who will bring in which foods so we end up with a variety of things. I believed that we had two more classes left, but I was wrong … it was the last day! “OH NO!!!!!” I thought to myself upon discovering that it was the last day and NO food! When I went to pick up my students they held up bags of treats and were grinning from ear to ear. I was so moved and proud of them for organizing the party by themselves. What an amazing group of girls!
Kindness makes everything even more beautiful.
