Kindness and compassion are often viewed as gentle and soft in our society, although they take center stage for all major religions. The ability to relate to someone else’s suffering or reach out and help — can anything be more human than that? Kindness is not a quality that comes easily to the weak, insecure, or selfish. It is not soft and gentle at all. The ability to choose kindness over and over in the face of life’s challenges takes a lot of strength. The everyday heroes below that “show up”, exemplify that bravery. –Guri
