One Small Act

What small act of kindness have you done in the last thirty days?
Submitted by One Kind Act.

I spent time talking to the mother whose daughter had been suspended from a sports team for violating a school rule (and state law).  Other parents were being vindictive and calling for harsher discipline instead of the three game suspension her daughter (and mine) had received.
My point to her was that on any given sideline for any sport, many people are vindictive and spiteful about countless things and that these same people weren’t necessarily targeting the woman’s daughter.  I told her to not take the comments personally and let the moment pass.  People do not always act with the best of intentions but we’re better off looking for the best and not dwelling on the worst.
