Kindness Changes Everthing

We had an assembly about how kindness changes everything. I believe this is true. The way we treat others is really important. Sometimes we don't even notice it. For example, you hold the door open for someone. You might think that this is normal but, to that person it may just have changed their day. I say this because say they were having the worst day ever and everyone was just being mean or annoying to them. You open the door for them and smile at the and hold the door open for them. You could have changed their day for the better. In a school or anywhere, you don't know everyone's background and problems. Not unless you're psychic, which I highly doubt.  Let's go to the extreme to explain my point. Let's imagine that here is one person who has been getting bullied their entire life. They think that they can't take it any more and they are starting to think of suicide. They go to school like normal and everyone is ignoring them and today the bullying has gone over the top. They are so upset it feels like their heart has been stabbed. They drop their books and they expect no one is going to help. All of a sudden a person comes by and helps them pick up their books. Can you imaging how, a person who people don't even look twice at let alone help, might feel when someone is being kind to them? The feeling is magical. It gives them hope, even if it's as small as grain of rice, it is still hope. That one act might change the way they look at life. It doesn't have to be complicated or huge. Being kind should be like our second nature. And if it's not, small thing pile together to make a massive difference.
