Kindness is everywhere, if you stop and look.

Tuesday, December 01, 2020

If you turned on the TV today, you might quickly get stressed out and heartbroken. With all the violence that is being shown, you might think that there is no love left in this world. The wars and violence seem constant. You might feel like there is no hope for humanity, so there is no point in trying to be kind, compassionate or loving.

However if you stop and look around, there are still people that go out of their way to show love to others, even complete strangers. By doing so they are making the world a happier place to live in. Here is a story of compassion and kindness that will inspire you to also be better in this world. Not just doing the holiday season, everyday emoticon

Unlikely Friendship

Florida State wide receiver Travis Rudolph had no idea the joy he would bring to mother Leah Paske when he sat down to have lunch with her autistic son in his school cafeteria. Rudolph, who was visiting the middle school along with other FSU athletes, noticed the boy sitting alone, so he took a seat and joined him for a few slices of pizza. Rudolph’s sweet gesture brought tears to the mother's eyes when she received a picture of the two eating together at lunchtime. Marking a moment she’ll never forget, she took to Facebook to exclaim her joy: “This is one day I didn't have to worry if my sweet boy ate lunch alone, because he sat across from someone who is a hero in many eyes. Travis Rudolph thank you so much. You made this momma exceedingly happy.”
