12 thoughts on “Simply Being Kind (Tanka)

      • I suppose there are no simple answers; I know for youths who call in who get in trouble for bullying or fighting all the time, it is often that they were abused at home or may be suffering from a mental health illness…I don’t believe people are born mean…and if so, it has to be some mental health condition.

      • I would agree with that, I don’t think generally people are born mean short of having some mental or genetic condition. I think the greatest majority of the time it is due to environmental issues as you say.

  1. Ain’t that the truth!

    I woke up in the middle of the night a week ago because I cried in my dreams. Why? Well, there was this young kid who wanted this toy from his Mama, but she didn’t want to buy it and then they started leaving the store. So the boy started crying.

    Then out of nowhere, another young boy races after them, and offers to buy the toy for the other boy. And I could hear myself saying (or was it someone else?) “Good kid, what a nice kid.” And then the tears started to flow. 🙂
