The first real "kindness assignment" I was ever given came when I was in 2nd grade.
A small boy with red hair, freckles and pleading eyes asked me, "Would you please be my friend, because I don't have any?"
This really scared me
. This boy was disliked and shunned by the other students for some reason. I had a brief, scared, thought that I would also become an outcast and be disliked if I befriended him. I remember my heart pounding a second or two.
Then I remembered what this world was all about and I said, "Yes. I will be your friend."
When you have to make a quick decision always choose love over fear. Kindness can be as easy as speaking one word!
