A friend sent me this, I thought I'd pass her words on.

Recently there has been an e-mail circulating telling people to turn on
their car headlights on September 11th in remembrance. Well, quite frankly,
I don't think too many of us have forgotten about September 11th and I
personally don't think turning our headlights on will make a big difference
in our world.

So instead why not use September 11th to practice random acts of kindness.
Do something nice for a complete stranger. Buy a coffee at Starbucks for the
person next to you. Pay for the person's toll behind you on the bridge.
Bring cookies to your local firefighter, pick flowers for a total stranger.
And when they ask you why, tell them "it's September 11th and I'm practicing
random acts of kindness." We could all be a little nicer to each other
because you never know what tomorrow brings. It may be a small gesture but
hopefully it will have a huge impact.

It may not make a difference in the world but I'm sure it will make a
difference in that person's day. And who knows? Maybe that person will pass
along their random act of kindness to someone else and eventually, it will
make a difference in the world.
I must create a system, or be enslav'd by another man's;
I will not reason and compare; my business is to create.

Excellent suggestion. Now wouldn't the world be a much better place if we all were to practice random acts of kindness thoughout the year?

Re: Kindness

Good suggestion. It even develops good relations with people around.
