World Kindness Day
Updated: Nov 14, 2019
I saw somewhere this morning that today is National Kindness Day.
After some examination, I discovered that it is actually World Kindness Day. How very American of us to miss that detail and claim the day of our own. Sometimes we forget that there is a big world out there, and as much as I love this country, I think it is important to note that the American Way isn't the only way.
I'm not exactly sure why we need a day dedicated to being kind. I feel like kindness should be a trait that is a foundation piece of our humanity. I guess a little reminder never hurt anybody.
With that in mind, maybe take a step or two today to go out of your way to be kind to an unsuspecting stranger today...or an unsuspecting acquaintance, if you are normally a jerk.
Regardless of their shape, size, religion, or color, I can't think of anybody who wouldn't benefit from a little extra kindness.
