    There was a girl in my p.e class that is a grade younger than me. She was always quiet in the class and I always wondered if she had anyone to talk to. I am sort of quiet myself and I would think of all the times I had no one to talk to. Over the whole year I would say hi to her and sometimes she would come over...

One day I saw a homeless man struggling with his few belongings so I stopped and gave him some plastic bags and bottled waters and 20 dollars and looked into his eyes and said life can be so hard sometimes can't it He responded yes it can I will never forget that look in his eyes
Don, Rohnert Park California

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.
Franktonio, Mexico City

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

(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.
Tim, Chicago

Being kind to one another costs nothing.

"With a simple smile, you can be the sunshine in someone else's winter shade."
antonio martins, SA, TX

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?

I read Brynn comment, and I think that it is so powerfull, I going to try it with my students here in El Salvador, thanks
Jorge, El Salvador

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!
Penny, Boston, MA

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!
