Guerrilla Kindness

I was inspired by something I saw today. One of my friends was having a disagreement on FB with someone (yes, it had to do with the political train wreck we’re living in) and she took a step back and injected unexpected kindness.

Earlier in the thread someone had linked to a not very flattering post the antagonist made on her own wall. There were a dozen or so follow up posts before my friend found another post on this person’s wall that expressed a noble aspiration and concern for other’s welfare. She posted this as a reminder to everyone that the antagonist was also capable of goodness and kindness and reminding everyone that the only way to solve these problems is through kindness. Anumodana to my friend and doMay we  the same.
