Act of Kindness

Here’s a story from “The Will to Exist" — a bit of a tear-jerker — that happens to be placed in Iraq, though that really isn’t particularly relevant. The heart of it:

I made a spur of the moment donation of cash out of my pocket. And I’ll never regret it. Most people I know will never live in a war torn city. Most will never be crippled. Most won’t ever wonder where they will get the money to renew their passport so they can start a new job and renew hope. Most will never have to survive on their own ability to make other people laugh - to turn a life of hard times into a funny story that makes people around smile and laugh so that their eyes crinkle up.

But do read the whole thing
