I hope this note finds you well and I’m glad that you are taking the time to visit BK2HK!
Here it is June already and in two months BK2HK will be celebrating it’s 25th anniversary! I created Be Kind to Humankind in August of 1988 because of a tragic accident I read about in our local press. To find out more please go to our “about” page.
There has been a lot going on in our nation and there have been many changes in our country as to who we once were as a nation. We used to be steeped in faith, family and friends, however the huge difference now is that the peace and comfort that we used to feel as a nation is gone.
Now there are terrorist attacks, school shootings, angry people taking out their anger by shooting massacres, road rage, hateful remarks spewed out in social media and more.
The one thing that we can be sure of is what my father once said, and that was “It has never hurt anyone to be a little kinder.” A little more kindness is something this world can use. This is a fact. There cannot be any disputes about it. Showing kindness every day with simple acts of kindness is easy and very rewarding. It is also contagious. It spreads from one person to the next and then some!
Being kind makes the giver feel good. It also makes the recipient feel good. Being kind is healthy. Smiling creates less wrinkles on the face. Smile wrinkles are better than frown wrinkles anyway. Smiling (a little one, we don’t expect you to walk around looking like the joker in Batman!) is easy to pass along and it takes very little effort.
Smiles are free.
Being kind is free.
Being compassionate, thoughtful and caring is free.
Please remember that in the summer months, blood for local hospitals is in much need! I am now able to donate blood again after healing from knee replacement surgery. I hope that you will donate also! It’s a great way to be kind and save lives!
Best Wishes for a great summer!
