This I Believe Draft #1 (489)

This I believe in kindness.  

Kindness is defined as being friendly to other people, it is doing simple acts that benefit others around you. To show kindness you don’t always have to give your change to the poor, or volunteer at homeless shelters, though those are great things to do. To show kindness you can easily give someone a compliment or hold the door open for the people behind you. I believe in kindness because I have seen how it changes people remarkably. Say hi or ask how someone is doing today. You never know what someone is going through, something as simple as asking how their day has been could impact their day in a small or big way.  

Real life examples that make me believe in kindness.  

Example 1 – The first Sunday of the month September 8th, 2019 my parents came down to Lindsay to watch the football games on tv with me. They arrived around ten o’clock, since the games didn’t start until one o’clock, we went out for breakfast. On are way back my dad decided to stop at the convenience store. There was a homeless guy sitting out front of the store with a cup in front of himself. I watched as people would walk by him not even acknowledging he was there. Therefore, as I was exiting the car and heading into the store, I drop my lose change into his cup, my mom then followed by giving him her leftovers, he thanked as before we went inside. On are way back out he was now sitting there with a cup of coffee and eating the leftover pasta. As we passed paths again, he smiled and waved. This act of kindness helped someone to eat and get a warm beverage for the day. It also didn’t change our life in anyway, except now knowing we made a small difference in another person’s day.     

Example 2 – Another act of kindness that made someone’s day was how I met my best friend Kayley. It was the sixth grade and I made this huge mess in class, I spilled water everywhere. No-one thought to help me except for her. She explained how it was no big deal and not to worry about it. After that we just clicked, started paring up together for group assignments and hanging out outside of school. Her one small act of kindness made a lasting friendship, plus made me feel less of an air head. 

Conclusion 

Kindness is a powerful gift that we all possess and should use every day. It can be small acts of kindness like, holding the door open or, helping someone clean up a mess. To big acts of kindness such as, volunteering your time to help another. Overall making a little time out of your day to think about how to make someone else’s day better can never hurt or get old. I believe in Kindness.

  1. I love how you shared multiple examples about how kindness has impacted your life. It shows you connect with and mean what your writing about. There are a few spelling errors, my suggestion is to re-read it and you will be great.

  2. Very easy reading. Enjoyable examples of where your belief stems from. I found your second example very compelling, just about anyone can relate to the power of being shown a kindness. Use that example to drive home that point.
