Emotions are raw and many people are struggling. And I witnessed two acts of kindness that brought people to tears in a space of a few days. The acts, of themselves, were not terribly noteworthy, but the responses were.
Is kindness and consideration so alien to us right now that even the simplest exhibition of understanding and care can bring about gratitude in its liquid form - perhaps its most precious and valuable manifestation?
Or perhaps it is that much more powerful than we remember and we are ready to open ourselves up to that power right now?
It doesn't really matter as long as we remember to perform good deeds and considerate actions with no expectation of compensation in return.
