Human kindness re-emerges in wake of Conn. tragedy
The end of last week looked very bleak with the news out of Connecticut, but over the weekend I saw many surprising acts of kindness that restored my faith in my fellow man.
I saw people stepping up and giving a stranger a few needed dollars. For a change, I didn’t feel threatened by aggressive drivers in crosswalks. And no one fussed too much while standing in lines at stores; they chatted with each other and dealt with delays with grace.
I am sorry that it took such a tragic situation to bring out basic human kindness. Let’s hope everyone keeps things in perspective and continues to act this way. Kindness and charity toward others is a small price to pay and is the only real way we can combat the bad things that we encounter in life.
Please, everyone — not just at Christmas but all year long — just be nice to each other.
