What this world needs is a new kind of army – the army of the kind. ~Cleveland Amory
I recently shared an Instagram image of my husband and I standing on a street corner in NYC near a chalk-drawn heart at our feet. A friend asked on the feed, “Did you bring your own chalk?” The comment made me laugh. It sounds like me actually, to do something like that but in this instance, it was someone else who brought the chalk. In fact, it was what I would consider a random act of kindness. We found a number of these chalk hearts along our walk around the city that evening.
Sometimes when we engage ourselves in activities like leaving hope notes, or sidewalk messages, we forget that others might be doing the same. To stumble across gestures of kindness from strangers is nothing short of wonderful. It reminds me that we are all called to be a part of “the army of the kind”.
Today, share a story that expresses the power (and beauty) of kindness.
