    True kindness lies within the act of giving

    without the expectation of something in return.

    What an incredible story.

    Homeless man gets a break from a complete stranger and a flood of emotion ensues. We could only wish that this type of kindness would be reciprocated worldwide.  Props to that dude!

    A Spoon Full of Sugar

    I do believe that even if a friend is hurting or going down a path that I may believe is not in their best interests, it's important to speak up and help them through it. But it's more important to help with kind words, not mean and spiteful ones. An so called friend believed...

    I am a 49 year old guy.

    I'm in reasonable health, I have a great family even a daft dog! When I was younger, I went through the same stuff as lots of other people. Medical problem. Changing school problem, parental divorce problem. Wow! I think back now and I'm amazed at how much you survive in life...

    They knew something was wrong.

    I never come for a coffee in the early evening. Morning coffee? Absolutely...like clockwork. Afternoon? Hit or miss depending on the type of day I'm having. Evening? NEVER. So when I hit the Starbucks drive thru at 6pm the boys knew something wasn't quite right... Imagine...

    Rare Nowadays....

    What I've Learned

    I've lived long enough to learn a few things. There is a circle of life. What goes around does come around. What we put out eventually comes back to us. We all really are connected to each other, even if we have never met and live on different sides of the earth. Treating others...

    I don't see the point in treating someone

    unkindly. It only reflects negatively on yourself. I understand that people don't always see eye to eye, but where in that does it say you have to be rude simply because someone views something different than you and who are we to say what is right or wrong? From my prospective...

    that we can display is compassion. If everyone had equal amounts of compassion for one another this would be a better world to be in.

    There aren't enough people in the world

    who are kind to the people they meet. Regardless of if you're a total stranger or my best friend, I always treat people the same way. There was an old system called chivalry, being gentlemanly, which I practice. I believe that the world is better with random acts of kindness, so...

    I always make sure to treat other's with

    kindess, compassion, and understanding no matter who they are or what they've dont to me personally. Most people give the kindness right back, mostly strangers and adults. If strangers can return kindness, why can't my friends?

    involved with the LGBT community and people of other religions or groups just because I am Catholic, but I don't hate anyone. God does not teach me to hate, and those who hate in the name of God shouldn't make you think all people of that religion are like that. I am my own...

    Yes, I am a firm believer in treating others

    with kindness. This is the only way to treat and work with others within your family, friends, co-workers, and others in day to day meetings with each other. However, do not let others over run you and your ideas. Stand your ground but be tactful when dealing with others.

    Today I read it is better to treat everyone

    with kindness from the first moment,because you always can be unkind later,but once you are unkind there is no turning back.

    Actions Truly Do Say I Care About You As You Once Did For Me

    As we age, we often become a bit more mellow, sentimental, and not wanting to be a bother to anyone. Our material needs become less while our desire to spend time with our loved ones increases. We are so busy when we are younger and perhaps don't always recognize that the aging...

    Kindness is a beautiful language to speak.

    To treat someone means to give them a positivity. The best gift you can give to another person is kindness.

    Treat others the way you want to be treated.

    Don't do to others what you don't want to be done. You will never regret being kind, but you will regret being otherwise.
