What is one act of kindness you have witnessed, granted or received?

Kindness matters.

I'm curious to hear what acts of kindness, random or not, you have witnessed, given or received. Let's discuss the everyday miracles happening among us that rarely make the nightly news.

I'm interested in any story of kindness, no matter how large or small it may seem.

    May 18 2013: What you give to those who needed your help, the helped will in turn give to others. When I was young, people had helped me. At first, I thought they did it because they wanted something back, but my god father told me that people give because it helps them feel connected to others and all they want is that you in turn give others what I gave you, so he gave me love and kindness, so I in turn live my life this way. You are a kind person and a brave one (using your heart and your brain to decide what action to take).
