Practice Kindness to Make a Difference

AMES, Iowa – Another day, another act of incivility, anger or violence. Ever-pervasive attitudes of self-centeredness and disregard for others seem to symbolize our times. But what if we could flip the script from callousness to kindness? That is one way to make a difference at the grassroots level, says Cheryl Clark, a human sciences specialist with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach.
If you need an extra incentive, Nov. 13 is World Kindness Day, according to the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation. The internationally recognized nonprofit provides free online resources to educators and others to encourage acts of kindness across the globe.
