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: When I had young children, I was at lunch one day with my mother and was talking and laughing joyfully with the three of them. I had an older man walk up to the table after we had been there about an hour or so and gently place a flower on the table in front of me, smile at me and then proceed to walk off.
    This random act of kindness has always helped me through a hard time. When it is a difficult day with my children or people in general, I think back to this random act of kindness. It reminds me of how beautiful others can be and encourages me to continue to do the same.
