In many public areas of life, the rhetoric has become quite devisive, creating an us versus them mentality. However, this attitude represents a false perception, as we have far more in common than the differences some use to divide. We are husbands, wives, fathers, mothers, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, friends and neighbors, and when we see each other as we are rather than as a stereotypical tag that divides, then kindness prevails.
The Acts of Kindness Challenge (#actsofkindness) is a series of regular challenges that encourage us to extend a helping hand to those we see everyday but might not normally recognize. In the end, we can make a difference in people’s lives and uphold the golden rule that is common across all religions to “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
