Some years ago, When I was admitted to the hospital psychiatric ward for attempted suicide during an extremely abusive relationship of 17 years, I went into the ward and curled up onto a bed that hadn't been prepared yet with bedding etc. a young woman in the ward came up and gave me her pillow for my head. This was the first time in years I had been shown any kindness in many years and this small act of compassion towards me changed my life. From this I realized how important kindness was and I have committed my life to always being kind and compassionate to all people. I don't think we truly realize How one small act of kindness can change a persons life forever. Never underestimate the power of kindness. To all kind people here and everywhere- thank you for making the world a more beautiful place.
