November 13 is World Kindness Day
How many days have I found myself turning down the volume on the television? The news can be depressing. The shouting. The fighting. The lack of civility.
Did you know there was a day dedicated to world kindness?
Let’s find special ways to be extra kind. Turn up the volume of graciousness. Do something unexpected for someone. Encourage others in a way that fires them up.
