Random Acts Of Kindness – Amazing Teenagers. You’d think I would finally reach a level of maturity where I wouldn’t automatically judge people by appearance.
Apparently, not yet.
Whilst returning VERY, VERY late Sesame Street dvds to the Salt Lake City Main Library yesterday, I watched a sightless lady try to navigate the returns line with her seeing eye dog. There were 3 snarky teenage boys just behind her–you know the sort–jostling each other, sniggering at their own jokes. Anyway, when the librarian told the lady she had $12.00 in fines, she took out her worn change purse.
The three teenagers that I’d been busy judging stepped in and politely told her that they’d “be pleased to pay that fine.” They handed over the money and quietly bought a cloth book bag for her, piling her new audiotapes inside.
I needed that this week.
I keep forgetting how truly good people can be, and that Random Act of Kindness humbled me and lifted me up at the same time. What Act did you see or perform this week?
