Every day the world is developing. We have seen governments and ordinary citizens become more respectful of people’s needs, more aware of inclusivity, and more aware of celebrating one another’s differences. We hold people more accountable for what they do, and increasingly more than ever, for what they say.
The more respectful and kinder the world becomes, the better it will be for all of us to live in. Kindness towards each other, kindness towards our environment, and a sense of community are what we all need right now. Kind actions feel better than unkind ones. Respectful words feel good when we use them instead of harsh words. Being kind takes a lot of hard work, but the rewards are sweet for both parties involved.
Let us enter the weekend and the rest of the term with a heartless heavy and full of love and kindness towards our families, towards our friends, and towards our children. Be the kindness role models that your children so desperately need. Show them how it is done, regardless of the circumstances.
