"Always be kinder than necessary because everyone you know is fighting some type of battle" - T.H. Thompson and John Watson

This is one of my favorite quotes of all time and something that I really try to live by. You never when a simple act of kindness such as holding the door for someone, asking how someone's day is going, saying please, giving a smile or even giving up your bus seat can have on another person. That person could dealing with something way more than you could have ever imagined, such as just losing a loved one, being laid off of work, having a home detroyed by fire or maybe just having a plain old bad day. One simple act of kindness could bring them a little bit of hope or comfort to know that someone else cares.  Maybe you wont get instant gratification or even a thank you, but people will know remember what you did for them, whether they ackowledged it or not. One act of kindness, EVERYDAY. Try it out! :)
