The Kindness Project

Today at work, I was presented by a lovely paper flower from a group of children as a thank you for helping the community. The gesture was part of our Kindness Project in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. and an echoing lesson we are stringing through school discussions while learning about the Civil Rights movement.

I can't tell you how touched I was to get this flower that, unlike other flowers, will not die, wilt away, and smell like mildewy sludge until I empty the grimy vase. It can sit for as long as I like on my desk, stabilized by my canister of pens and pencils as a reminder that a little act of kindness can go a long way.
