While I was on the bus one afternoon, coming home from college, I listened to a woman who spent her entire time on the bus, speaking with a man who suffered with autism. When he got off the bus, the bus driver told her, "You were very good with him." The woman started to cry and told the driver she had an autistic son of her own.
That day I was reminded that there is kindness out there, even though sometimes it can be hard to find. Be kind today. You never know how much a smile or a small moment of kindness like this can make a difference to one person. And don't forget that the most touching stories can begin in the most unexpected places. Share your act of kindness today, whether it be non-fiction, fiction or poetry.
