Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Earplugs for all!

--by Puppatina, posted Oct 25, 2007

This last weekend, my sweetie and I went to the San Jose Grand Prix. We are used to be around racing so we know that it's really important to have ear plugs at the ready.  We decided to carry a lot of extras and give them out to (mostly) kids. Then we thought why not add a smile card. It was the highlight of the weekend to give out the earplugs and tell the kids with a smile card, to pass it on!

Something I dearly love about my hometown, San Jose, is that it truly is a melting pot. The diversity is what makes my city so great.  Watching all kinds of people enjoy the races was really fun because even young "cool" men in their 20s had huge smiles on their faces and were really enjoying themselves. Their true, unmasked selves were showing and they were beautiful to see!

Lucky me to live here!

And having read your truly nice story, not only on how great your city great but also about what you do to make your city even greater gave me this unexplained inner contentment and assurance not for myself but for my long time and very close friends that dates back to my childhood and had shared countless ups and downs together. You see, these friends of mine just moved to San Jose from our home country couple of months ago. And for knowing that they are living in such a friendly city makes me happier for them! God Bless you and the rest of San Jose!
