Kindness. Why should I show kindness? Why should I be kind? Kindness should be part of our everyday lives. There is a kid sitting alone at recess, invite them to join you. A kid crying, cheer them up. Our world needs more people like this. What does kindness mean to you? To me, kindness means helping others, being there for others when they need it, treating others with respect and show others that you care about them. Kindness is not a question. There should never be a "should I help them or should I not?" moment. The answer is the first one. ALWAYS help, no matter who the person, (Unless that would somehow put you at risk for something) No matter how small, from complimenting on someones clothing, to being generous and sharing, kindness is kindness. Even if its a random act of kindness.
