Kindness can Overwhelm Hate

Acts of kindness like this one by Jamario Howard don’t put an end to hate and horror (furthered by the attack at a synagogue in Poway, California), but they’re a start — and something that each of us can do.

Now, it’s each of OUR turn to do something, even small, to make the world just a little better, safer, and kinder.

From Jamario’s Facebook post:

So tonight JaMychol Baker Tae Knight and myself went out to eat at this place called Brads in Oxford, and after us sitting there a while waiting on our food i noticed an elderly woman sitting alone. My exact thoughts was “dang I’d hate to have to eat alone”. So after thinking about it a minute i walked over to her and asked if i could sit with her. She said yes and we talked for a minute and after a while of talking she told me she lost her husband and that tomorrow would have been their 60th anniversary. I instantly gave my condolences and asked her to come eat with us, which she was excited to do. The point in this is always be kind and be nice to people. You never know what they are going through. This woman changed my outlook on life and how i look at other people. Everyone has a story so do not judge! And people i can’t stress this enough. GO SEE YOUR MOM AND YOUR GRANDPARENTS. They miss you!!
