I think our world could use more “random acts of kindness” such as these. Oftentimes, we’re so busy (and I’m just as guilty of this as anyone else) that we don’t take time to notice people around us who may need a little help or a kind word. We focus on the negative — the long line at the grocery store, a messed up order at a restaurant — instead of ways we can do something positive. A random act of kindness doesn’t have to be complicated or elaborate; it can be as simple as a smile, paying for someone’s cup of coffee, or saying “thank you.”
