World Kindness Day

Today is World Kindness Day … doesn’t feel much like it here in the U.S., does it?  According to the website Inspire Kindness

World Kindness Day is a global day that promotes the importance of being kind to each other, to yourself, and to the world. This day, celebrated on November 13 of each year, has the purpose is to help everyone understand that compassion for others is what binds us all together. This understanding has the power to bridge the gap between nations.

Let’s all try to remember that we’re all in this boat (planet Earth) together, try to set aside our differences for a bit, and remember to be kind … not just today, but every day.

  2. You are undoubtedly aware that “World Kindness Day” was created when a collection of humanitarian groups came together on November 13, 1997 and made a “Declaration of Kindness”. That this day not only should, but also needs to be promoted now more than ever goes without saying. Jaime Corpus Reyes founded the “Waves of Kindness Global Initiative” on January 1, 2010 which advocates just that : “Kindness is pure love expressed, experienced, realized and celebrated everyday. Human Kindness defines the fate of Humankind.” In the spirit of World Kindness Day…go forth and generously sprinkle kindness everyday everywhere on everyone! Thank-you!

    • Indeed, I was aware of some, but not all of that, and had originally planned a much more informative post to note the day, but in light of other things going on, I simply could not find the motivation. So, thanks for adding a bit of the history of the day! Since I did not leave the house yesterday, I didn’t get to be kind to many, but I did try to be extra kind to the girls and the kitties! Does that count?
