Being Kind to Others

“Courage. Kindness. Friendship. Character. These are the qualities that define us as human beings, and propel us, on occasion, to greatness.”
                                                                                                            ― R.J. Palacio, Wonder

Being kind to others is something that we are taught from our earliest years.  A virtue first instilled in us by our parents it has been nurtured in every aspect of our lives.  We have the ability to be kind to others but often times it comes down to choosing to be kind.  For some people it is a daily choice and for others it comes very naturally.  This day and every day let being kind to others become a virtue that we continue to live out in all we do.  Let us choose to perform acts of kindness rather than harbor grudges towards others.  In a world so in need of kindness and compassion let us be the change we wish to see in all we do and say so that we can build a world filled with compassion and peace.
