Happy National Random Acts of Kindness Day :)


Any act of kindness, no matter how big or small can make a huge difference in a persons life, in communities and in the world.  How nice that there is a day devoted to just that, random acts of kindness!  

Wikipedia describes it as a day to celebrate and encourage random acts of kindness.   Kindness is a behavior marked by ethical characteristics, a pleasant disposition, and concern for others. It is known as a virtue, and recognized as a value in many cultures and religions.  

Along with celebrating and demonstrating kindness, resultantly it embraces the whole pay it forward mentality.  Recognizing the power one person can have to impact a chain reaction of kind deeds.

“Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” (Mark Twain)
