Wow. I really love this question! When I was going through a really tough time a few years ago, someone told me to never give up. That comment really changed my life in some way and I still never forget that moment. Although it was a simple comment, it really meant so much to me. :)

While on the bus, there was an old lady who needed help getting her walker off at her stop. (The bus was too high and could not be lowered any more.) Without even being asked, a little boy around the age of 8, ran over and helped her off the bus. Although this was a very small gesture, I thought it was incredibly heartwarming because the boy had such pure intentions. Children are our future and that simple act showed how positivity and generosity can be taught at such a young age

My dad saw an old lady fall over on the sidewalk, but no one would help her. So he parked his car and went over and helped her get up :)

A few years ago, I was trying to raise money to go on a trip to Romania with a church group, so we could volunteer at a baby orphanage for a month. There are so many babies at those orphanages that many of the babies pass away, not because of lack of food... but because many of the babies aren't ever held or hugged in their life. I never knew that lack of touch could cause a 1 year old baby to just "give up". The trip cost A LOT, and I was having difficulties raising the amount needed. Well one day, my mom had gone to the bank to do something, but I stayed in the car waiting for her....well she ended up talking to the teller about my trip... and apparently a woman was listening in on the conversation. Obviously I didn't know this...but here I am sitting in the car and this random lady knocks on the window and hands me a check with $100 dollars. She asked me if I was the "girl" going to Romania ...and said the money was for my trip...I was just amazed that a complete stranger had the compassion to do something like that. It's wonderful to know that there are ppl like that in the world. ♥

The story of the kindest acts I've seen done, started with kindness but also with pain. Technically, it's more than 1 act, but I think what I've seen this week is so interesting & moving that I'll just say what I saw. So this week for my school is "Anti-Bullying Week". For a while we've being going around school seeing random pictures of superheros, without getting an explanation for it. Well, this week we finally found out what was trying to be said. When I came in this week, paper was everywhere. They were shaped in the "superman" symbol's shape and had names on them. We were told that EVERYONE'S name was there. The interesting thing is that my highschool is called an "education park", so there are actually 3 highschool in 1 campus. Paper wasn't just in 1 school, IT WAS IN ALL THREE. Thinking about it, it's truly amazing that they went that far for this cause. Everywhere there were banners saying "YOU BE A HERO". The thing is, many people get bullied, but many people also watch them get bullied. It's hard to get through to the bullies and even the victims themselves, but what about the observers? We can do something, we should so something, we should be heroes to others and stand up for those who are being attacked. Now this week, today was also a special week for art; today was "Duchamp Day". Inspired by Duchamp and his idea that art can be anything and should be something with meaning, that speaks and connects to you, today we put up our own art to see how others would react/interact with them. One project was one where there were giant pieces of paper with markers nearby and the words "HOW HAVE THEY HURT YOU?". It was open to the public to write whatever they thought would answer the question and all of the answers were very moving and sad. There were things such as "he cheated on me", "she cheated on me with my bestfriend", "My mom's a crack addict", "They tell me I'm worthless EVERYDAY" and even "he raped me". It became one of the largest attractions today. People saw other people's hurt and wrote theirs too. We all became connected and the words along the ceiling were true; "You are not alone". I saw people writing sad things and others reaching out and writing kind things like "I'm sorry"& "I agree". What's really beautiful is how a such a big school like ours, could come TOGETHER like this. This week, I think we've really connected with each other and have come to the realization that we need to reach out to each other and spread kindness. Even if is just a little bit such as writing "Awww :(", we can make a difference by reaching out to others. Life is about hurt, but life is also about love and... to anyone feeling down right now, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. ♥
