The world would be such a better place if we had more acts of kindness in everyday life. Talking about kindness, one saying that makes total sense comes into my mind. “Kindness is the language that the deaf can hear and the blind can see”- Mark Twain. By that said, being kind to one another reaches the souls of everyone out there.
Noticing that someone is in need of a helping hand, opening your eyes and being active to the ones in need, starting doing acts of kindness is something you can start practicing, today. And in case you are in need of some inspiration of kindness acts, take a look at these 15 stories that will for sure restore your faith in humanity.
