I Wish People Were Kinder To Each Other

    The night before I took my graduation picture,

    my mom said "Put on makeup tomorrow, I want your picture to look beautiful." Keep in mind I almost never wear makeup. She didn't even end up buying the picture, by the way.

    Everyday

    Does it have to be...Thanksgiving Day?Birthday?Xmas day?No, it can be everyday!Meanwhile, the wall of the charming Shakespeare and Company bookstore, reads:"Be kind to strangers, they can be angels in disguise."Just give a try...everyday.

    While it is true that people's level of

    kindness to others can be dependent on their culture and circumstances growing up, I also think that it can be a learned behavior over time. People can change once they are thrust into a unique situation. I've always considered myself to be a very kind person even though I've...

    It's weird because kindness seems to be a

    rarity in today's society. People don't really know how to take someone who is genuinely being kind to them. I think it's because their so used to people being mean when they come across a polite good hearted person it's kind of off putting. Or awkward because it's not what they...

    I've come to realize humanity doesn't care.

    They argue and debate, all the while telling us that they want to make a change for themselves, for the world, end the misery, yet they do nothing. I'm tired of the "us" and "them" mentality. We are all one being. Wronging another is the same as wronging yourself, and will get...

    It seems like the more time goes on the more

    people become colder. If everyone just took some time out of their day to be kind to someone, you can know that you just made someone's day that much better.

    Teenagers these days,

    in my opinion, are rude to adults and their peers. What ever happened to being kind and respectful to one another? Say I'm old fashioned, but when I see children talking back and yelling to their parents it makes me feel like there is no hope in society anymore.

    Smiling and saying something kind costs nothing.

    Yet, that smile or kind word can be priceless to someone else. You never know what demons someone else is hiding... Your smile or words might just help someone make the choice to carry on one more day.

    I honestly believe that

    if people treated each other the world would be a better place. People spend too much time hurting each other verbally and physically. Life would be so much more easier if everyone actually treated others the way they want to be treated.
