Kindness...

Someone left this article on kindness in my basket and I loved this quote -

"...kindness is one of the strongest characteristics a person can show because being mean is simply too easy" (Education Week Teacher, The School Kindness Project, 9/9/14)


It goes with the same theme of asking "Are You All Right?"
