Before ya'll go crucifying me for posting on this "day of silence" (that is if you even know what I'm referring to) hear me out.
I had no intention of posting today,..and not because it was orchestrated, but because I can't seem to remember to take photos of anything and my life feels kind of boring right now and all I can think about is legal arguments.. (all teh moshuns..guyz..all of em..).
But then I saw this thing on FB last night and it humbled me and gave me chills.
These are all screenshots taken from my own FB page.
Here's a post that clothing company KiKiLaRue linked to about a random act of kindness they did for one of their customers.
and then my friend from college's aunt shared this story about her experience at Target...
...and then a friend commented on this photo..which popped up on my newsfeed...
THIS. you guys. THIS is what we need.
We need more kindness, more compassion. Not silence. We need people who CARE about one another so that when someone is in trouble, we notice.. we're sympathetic.
Instead of having a day of silence, or maybe in conjunction with it, we go out and DO. Do good.
Pay it forward.
There's no way to tell whether Friday's tragedy sparked these random acts of kindness... but there's no way any of these things will bring anything other than pure joy to the people they affected.
That's what we need today.
