We blog about books and our fictional heroes almost everyday but today I'm going to take a break and talk about the real life ones. These are the ones that show incredible kindness even when sometimes they shouldn't. I know there have been many times in my life where kindness has affected me for the better ... like getting food for my kids and when I pull up at the drive through they inform me the car in front of me already paid for my food. Or when I have done my own act of kindness and see the smile on the face of a stranger that is having a worse day than mine. It makes life worth living. So here we go. Most of these people you probably have never heard of before but they are the angels on earth, trying to make a difference in at least one person's life.
Act of Kindness #1
On Sept. 25, somebody broke into Caitlin Prater-Haacke’s locker at school and used her iPad to post a Facebook status update that told her to die, she said. Instead of letting it upset her, Prater-Haacke decided to respond with kindness and put up positive post-it notes on every locker before students arrived for school.
