Wow! This is so great. I’m Scoop, the Cub Reporter with The Shady Pines Gazette News. Did you hear? Wednesday, November 13th is World Kindess Day. This is a really big deal y’all. It’s gonna be my lead story.
Here in Shady Pines Story Town we take pride in promoting kindness and caring. It’s really the thing we’re known for in this neck of the woods. I guess you could say it sorta put us on the map. Oh sure there are other small Southern towns, but we make it a point to make sure everyone who lives here, or visits, knows they are important and valued.
So, here’s what you need to know about World Kindness Day. It started back in 1998. The goal was to promote kindness all over the place like the United States or course, but also Canada, Japan, Australia and everywhere else you can imagine.
The folks who started this movement had in mind that people would come together and “highlight good deeds in the community focusing on the positive power and the common thread of kindness which binds us.” Isn’t that cool?
Let’s face it. The world has got a lot of problems right now like violence and war, poverty and sickness, pollution and political divides. There are plenty of questions about how to fix that stuff. But what if we all try to be kinder to one another and show we care how someone else is feeling? Who knows where that could lead?
What if, for just one day, we looked at everything we do and say through the lens of caring? What if, for just 24 hours, we made choices that were kinder to the planet, to our communities and, yes, to our neighbors?
I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to go out and report on what people are doing this 2019 World Kindness Day. I’ll be back with an update later. But in the meantime, what do you think you could do to make someone else feel a little better because they know you care?

My husband has had a long two days of traveling with work so I am going to have his favorite meal waiting for him when he gets home.
Good for you!
