    Kindness Is The Gift That Keeps On Giving

    There have been many times when I've felt so down that I thought I'd never get up again. There have been other times when I've felt so broken that I thought nothing would ever bring any solace or healing. And then, there have been times when I quietly screamed inside from the...

    It is practically built into us. We choose to be kind, and just as easily choose to not be kind. I often imagine what people think about when I see them treating other people badly, or ignoring them, walking by rather than stopping to help someone who dropped their belongings...

    The Key
