I recently witnessed a heartwarming incident in my local supermarket. An elderly lady didn’t have enough money to pay for her groceries and was trying to decide which goods to leave behind. A man in the queue behind her then pulled out his wallet and paid the difference. Perhaps it was only a small amount to him, but it mattered a great deal to the woman.
We can perform random acts of kindness for anyone, anytime, anywhere. A single thoughtful act can change lives.
As songwriter David Crosby pointed out, ‘You can’t go a hundred yards in this world without seeing someone whose conditions you can make better.’
