Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Sadness in Common

When I was six, my mom died in a car wreck. Now I move on and on alone. But one day, I realized I was not alone.

At school, we were watching "The Land Before Time." In the movie, a dinosaur's mom died.  I saw a girl in a chair crying.

I asked her what was wrong, and she said her mom died. I told her she wasn't alone. I told her that her mom is looking down on her from the stars. She stood up and hugged me as tight as she could. My eyes filled with tears.

Small kids of age six like you feel sorrows for others and console it inspires others. We adult can learn many things from kids. When they grow up with sympathy and compassion, they help change the world. Attitude is a little thing that makes very big difference.
