Day random acts of kindness
How often, in our terrible century of violence and lawlessness we show kindness and mercy to those who live near us? Unfortunately, rare. Busy with their own Affairs and concerns, angry at each other because of the indifference of bureaucrats, the constant lack of money, family problems, problems at work we are rude to their neighbors, pass by the man who was in trouble.
That's probably because we have hardened that human life, we have ceased to have value, several charitable organizations gathered on November 13, 1998 at a conference in Tokyo, decided to create a new holiday: it ’s Day random acts of kindness” (“Random Acts of Kindness Day”) and to celebrate it every year on February 17.
"our goal is world Kindness day the man beyond himself, his country, culture, race and religion is stated in the final document of the conference, we want all people to understand that they are citizens of the world. They have common goals and common values. And what if all people will focus on understanding and compliance with these goals and values, our global community will come to a peaceful coexistence of peoples and States.
On this day, the festival organizers recommend to sympathise not just kindness, and unselfish kindness without expecting from this expression of praise, let alone any material goods. In General, it is different and can not be. After all, the kindness of greed – it's not kindness… in Fact turning away from someone else's misfortune, rejecting the request for assistance, we can then be in the same situation.
When our trouble, no one will pay attention to, will not assist. It is no wonder that the great Chinese sage Confucius said: “Try to be at least a little kinder — and you will see that it will be unable to commit a bad deed. And the good done by you, back to you, even a great boon.
