Turn Your Humanity Back On!

Everywhere I look, read, or go, I see unkind acts being projected by people on other people. I was reading a news article today on Facebook about two young men who high-jacked a car in Philadelphia, then lost control of the car and struck five people. Three of the victims died, all young siblings, while the other two were critically injured adults, one being the murdered childrens’ mother. If it’s not death from a stranger, we’re reading about children molested and murdered by family or friends, those who were charged with protecting them.

The web describes the definition of humanity as “the condition of being human; the quality or state of being kind to other people”. Unfortunately this definition is not being displayed by people on a daily basis. We are all here for a certain purpose and I believe that one of the main purposes is to be kind to each other. Please join me in selecting one or more “Acts of Kindness” to share with your community.
