Remarkable Kindnesses Only YOU Can Perpetuate

In a post titled What I Will Remember About Today, Jeffrey Falk comments on the tragedy in Newtown, CT, noting that of the many remarkable events which occurred on Friday, December 14, 2012, of both a positive and negative nature, it will not be a remarkably negative event which remains etched in his mind, but rather, an almost unremarkable act of kindness, the picking up of a dropped pen.

Falk goes on to note that of the billions of human beings in this world, the vast majority of them are good and decent people, an observation I would agree with.  This is not to say that each individual does not have the capacity to succumb to evil acts, because we do, myself included, but that does not negate the fact that goodness, kindness, is more common, unremarkably so unfortunately, than evil.

Are you going to perpetuate kindness today, unremarkably, such that your kindness is remarkable?
