It is important to be kind and be the one who will help when someone finds it difficult to help themselves. There will be times when someone needs a listening ear so it is important to be a good listener and also to say sorry. To be kind in times when no one is kind is a virtue by itself and along with that it is also important to be respectful, say please and thank you, and give to anyone who needs more than you. Always do the right thing when no one is watching and share a hug when someone requires it. Sharing things with those who have less than you is important and it is always important to remember what is right and what is not, and bring kindness into the world.
