  1. Sometimes we don’t see the light that shines in tragic events that happen in life. Thanks for sharing this video. Simple acts of kindness can transform lives. Never under estimate that the smallest choices can change many lives.


  2. Wow! What an inspirational video for all who watch and especially for that child.
    Just proves that one act of random kindness change a life.
    Thank you for sharing,


    • Thank you. I’ve always liked that one as well. I’ve heard it in a couple of different versions, but always with the same meaning. Also, thanks for following. Be well. 🙂


    • Thank you for stopping by. I think your sentiments are felt by many. After seeing this, I know I will be even more wiling to help and be less judgmental in the future. Be well. 🙂


    • I have a feeling that you, and many of us who are even slightly moved by this story, probably do engage in simple kindnesses like this. Maybe we don’t think such trivial acts amount to a whole lot, or that we aren’t really doing that much. But, when these little daily things become common daily things, they add up to, and define, character. Kudos …and thank you.


  3. I love that you honored this officer by sharing this link. It was such a small act of kindness, but the effects are awesome. Thank you for posting this. I had not seen it before. 🙂


    • Thank you for your thoughts and comments. Yes, the effects are awesome, and we never know when any small act, word, or smile on our part might have a powerful impact on another. Be well.


  4. This is a great story. That boy will be great someday because whenever he does something bad or wants to give up, he will think of that police officer and stay on the right path to success.
