People just aren’t kind any more. Is it because of parents not teaching their children? Is it because of war? What is it? I learned kindness from my grandmother, who used to feed, clothe and even board homeless and poor people. Nothing stopped her, and she was not a wealthy woman. She was uneducated, a housewife and the only income she had was the little pension the Government gave, which in my view is a disgusting amount given how rich this country really is.
Today, I know things are rough financially, but you can’t give a box of mac & cheese to someone? You can’t make a homeless man a sandwich for lunch??
People don’t stop for others on the road any more, they don’t help others change tyres, they just drive by as though their invisible. I know crime is high, but I’m certain that if you were in their shoes, you’d be thankful for help.
Where is the kindness in the world? If a beacon of light shone to the heavens every time someone performed a single act of kindness, the world would live in darkness. Have all the kind people vanished? Are they dead? Or are they silent because of society?
It saddens me that the world is like this.. but honestly, what have I done to change it? I’ve given homeless people money when I can, but is that enough? Not nearly.
Kindness starts at home. It starts with respect; respect for oneself, respect for humanity, respect for your mother, your father, your brother, your sister, your grandparents. It’s founded on qualities like genuineness, responsibility, humility, modesty, compassion, love, honesty. But, I cannot find another human being with all these qualities. People are full of hate, jealousy, anger, egos..
Maybe people are right. This is the end of the world. This is the apocalypse. What is a world without love and kindness? And I’m not talking about with your direct family.. I’m talking about love, kindness and compassion for each other.. for the human race.
So just remember, when you’re stuffing your fat arse for Christmas, someone is in the cold, starving. Put some ham, turkey and potatoes in a box, and give it to someone who needs it, because I’m certain you overcooked and someone at your dinner table is going to waste food because ‘they eye bigger than they belly’.
