Stories of Kindness from Around the World

A Lift Of Kindness


--by philip1957, posted May 5, 2007
It was a day when I forgot to take my wallet to office.  It was evening and I decided to walk back home -- a full 10 kms.

I walked for 5 minutes and just stopped for a while close to a traffic signal.  I was observing people waiting at the signal.

I happened to smile at a person on a bike.  He smiled back and asked me if I needed a lift.  Coincidentaly he was going the exact way I needed to go.

He was kind to me.  I returned back this kindness by offering lift to people when needed.  One kind act begets another.

And a smile started it all.
