Stories of Kindness from Around the World

A Simple Act

--by Anonymous, posted Feb 11, 2006
My mother recently wrote a thank you letter to Medicare to express appreciation for their patience in guiding her through the new prescription card process. They were totally shocked, and someone called to thank her. Many people everywhere provide services for us. We complain about the buraucracy, but forget that these are people like us who are just trying to make a living.

Often people are quick to criticise bad service but we should remember to also acknowledge good service.

Congratulations to your mother for showing kindness to those who "walked that extra mile" to guide her in her time of need.
