Arturo Ramirez is a hero to so many... for many reasons. He grew up VERY poor with eight bothers and sisters. Shortly after leaving the military as a Vietnam era veteran, he got caught up in drug addiction, alcoholism, and crime (Selling drugs. Lots of them.) Eventually, Arturo spent many years in prison as a very angry man. And then...…
3 simple tips:
1. Smile with eye contact to as much people as you can during your day.
2. Make honest compliments to every person you interact with.
3. Hug as long as people don´t feel uncomfortable.
Do this and you will experiment a new kind of joy.

I strongly believe that being kind can give to someone what hard work can't.

(actually from my Niece - Christina):
I give so freely of my time and resources not because I have extra, but because I remember how hard it is to have nothing. EVERYONE has something to offer, and yes even those of us that barely get our bills paid on time. If you lack money or time to spare, you always have kindness to share.

I would like to see adults, teens and children alike try to watch out for others. The bullying and disrespect of each other needs to change into what can I do to help you or I need a friend, do you? Let's all try to add friends not online but in person. I don't have enough friends. Online friends just aren't as much fun as the kind that can actually hug you. What do you think?

My brother-in-law and sister-in-law have an autistic child. In order to participate in a fundraiser walk, they needed to raise some money. Only a couple of people had donated and they were quite discouraged. So, I took it upon myself to discreetly make some phone calls and send out an email to a bunch of family and friends to ask them to support my nephew. They raised hundreds of dollars and don't even know how it happened. They are now pumped about the upcoming walk!

I was a first grade teacher for eight years. At the beginning of each day, my students and I read a sentence we had written together at the beginning of the year and posted on the wall. The sentence was "Kindness is important!" That set the tone for the year-each day we noticed and acknowledged individual acts of kindness among the students. Our classroom was a happy place to learn!
