Small acts of kindness?
I’d be curious to hear what people thing about starting a regular thread that documents small acts of kindness around the city….here’s an example from a couple of things that I recently saw:
The other day I went for a long bike ride throughout the city. While biking, I saw many small acts of kindness–a couple of them stood out to me. On 14th street I stoped to admire the stained glass windows on an old church. There was a woman sitting on the church steps covered in blankets asking for money. Most people passed by, ignoring her. Then, out of nowhere, a man walks up with a styrofoam container and says to the woman, “would you like a piece of cake? I just bought this.” A huge smile covered her face as she accepted the cake. Once the man gave her the cake, he walked off. Also, on 9th street, by the Verizon center, I noticed that a man had fallen out of his electronic wheelchair while trying to get over a curb and cross the street. Two women stopped and were trying to help him up. One was on the phone calling for assistance.
