A Cancer Victim Gives Lessons in Kindness

Life is too short and despite all the different problems people face, they can find happiness in the virtue of kindness. I would like to share an experience related to this.
One of my close friends was suffering from cancer and was admitted to a hospital in town. It was shocking that he was affected by the killer disease. He was dejected initially, then his attitude was awesome. He shows kindness to everyone around him. He never gets irritable. He was the one who inspired me to show kindness to all.
At the ward in the hospital it was a pitiful sight to see the children and adults suffering from cancer and undergoing treatment. I was dumbstruck at the bond they shared. They were very kind to each other.
At this sight my mind was jumping around to understand. Is this Love? Is this called Care? Finally I could hear a voice from the bottom of my heart which was so true and serene. It told me this was "kindness." Everyone is benefited by this "magic" word. Thus, the value of kindness has no bounds.
