My kindness journey across USA
--by petroskryf, posted Nov 3, 2015
I am now on a plane somewhere above Russia after a wonderful journey to the USA. And during this journey I encountered so much kindness from different people.
There is Elandra in New Orleans, who walked with my husband and me in an effort to find a museum that we couldn't find because we got the wrong address. And she remembered our faces from the previous day when we ordered something at the restaurant where she works. The warmth of the people of Louisiana will always stay with me.
In Maine, the people at the local laundry helped us find our way around there because we were not quite familiar with the washing machines. And they talked with us and shared a bit of their life.
And in New York we experienced the locals as very helpful: When we were on the wrong subway train, they directed us. We never experienced the so called always-in-a-hurry New Yorkers as rude or too much occupied to help us when we needed assistance. And at the 9/11 Memorial Museum we could share that kind of grief that connects people all over the world.
On our last Sunday in New York, my dear KindSpring friend, Mish, and her husband invited us to their home although they didn't know us really at all. and Mindy sent me some beautiful paper doves to treasure and share.
This is Kindness to the core. This is what matters really in life. Thank you for this wonderful platform where you don't need a visa or Green Card to connect. The only requirement is: kindness.
