Act of Kindness

Some of the simplest things can make the biggest changes in someone’s life. Many years ago I walked to the corner store, about a mile away from home, to purchase a stamp and mail a letter. I got into line and ordered my stamp and when I went to pay I was discovered that I had forgotten to put money into my pocket. I was embarrassed and started to excuse myself from the line when the lady behind me paid for the postage stamp. That simple act of kindness has remained with me all of these years.

Get out your tissue and watch how these firemen have made a difference in this man’s life and see the rewards the firemen receive for their simple act of kindness.

I challenge you to do a random act of kindness today and write about what it felt like to do so in the comment box below.

  • Thank you for sharing your story about the Austin Fire Department. The famous author is: Rip Esselstyn.

    What wonderful, compassionate, firemen!!! I wish all human beings could be so helpful to those who are in need. This story kind of reminds me of the fireman in Austin, Texas. At this one station, firemen were dropping dead of heart attacks at a very young age, in their 40s, 50s, etc. So, the son of this famous author who wrote a life changing book or books on veganism, whose last name is Essesstellyn or something like that (not sure of spelling) who was also a fireman at that same station, started teaching his coworkers about healthy cooking and eating nutritious, plant based foods. His advocacy reduced deaths from heart attacks by a significant amount.
