Acts of kindness year around

Tuesday, December 30, 2008

To the editor:

We teach our children that Christmas is the time for giving, which is a wonderful lesson to instill in them. But as a father I will share with my son that every day should be the time for giving, that it does not have to be money or gifts, but it can be time or a kind word. We are all living in this beautiful world together, and the more we can do a kind act for our neighbor, the better off we will all be. I've heard of random acts of kindness. Now let's try and practice constant acts of kindness. I wish a happy holiday to everyone. Forget all your troubles and dance.
