By Dauda, Catholic Partnership Schools Healthy Courier | Kindness is something that everyone should experience and share with each other. The kindest thing that has ever happened to me was over the summer. I was out buying food for myself, but I didn’t have enough money at the fast food place I was at. So, behind me, a man I didn’t know paid for my food completely.
When I asked him why, his reply was, “because I saw you give to the homeless man outside. If you hadn’t done that you would’ve been able to buy food yourself.”
After that, I think the world changed around me. There wasn’t anything that I saw money-wise that I thought was too expensive for the world. If we all worked together, we could afford anything, food or shelter.
