One of the biggest concerns is that we are raising a culture that thinks of kindness as a weakness, when it couldn't be further from the truth. All great things begin with a positive intent. We should encourage a kind heart and love for others.
Our purpose should be to serve as role model for others, especially the younger generations that might not have the opportunity to experience kindness as frequently as they should. Whether young or old, everyone can be made different by an act of kindness. Sometimes it's a gift, a card, a helpful hand, a word, or even just smile that says you matter.
Let's remember that the act of giving does not have to cost anything. Get into the habit of practicing kindness for others in your daily life, because it just might make them better.
