Small act of kindness

Not my story, but I read this somewhere


"Several years ago, I invited a Buddhist monk to speak to my Senior elective class, and quite interestingly, as he entered the room, without saying a word, catching everyone's attention.


He just walked to the board and wrote this: "EVERYONE WANTS TO SAVE THE WORLD, BUT NO ONE WANTS TO HELP MOM DO THE DISHES."


He went on to say "Statistically, it is highly unlikely that any of you will ever have the opportunity to run into a burning orphanage and rescue an infant. But, in the smallest of gestures of kindness -- a warm smile, holding the door for the person behind you, shoveling the driveway of the elderly person next door -- you have committed an act of immeasurable profundity, because to each of us, our life is our universe."


Your small act of kindness, you will save another's world.
