I just saw this video on my friend Jamie's page and had to share it. (You can read her entire post here.)
The video is 6 minutes long, but I watched it all the way through, because if Jamie posted it, I know there's a good reason, and I enjoy reading every word, or in this case, every minute of video watching that she encourages someone to take in. Jamie is my favorite 'real life' philosopher.
Just watching this man help out the driver in the white car spoke volumes to me about kindness and the way I wish our entire world worked. It brought tears to my eyes. Acts of kindness always do. I'm a sucker like that.
Why can't everyone do little things like this for others that need a small push, or a little help (I'm not whatsoever talking politics right now) instead of taking a blind eye? It's nice to see people lend a hand to a complete stranger. For me, it's the little things, and making people smile that makes life really special. You don't have to know each other to be a good hearted soul. This guy in the jeep deserves a handshake (or a lifetime's supply of ice cream!) for not passing up the person stranded in this vehicle, like everyone else did. This made my day.
Thanks, Jamie, for your constant flow of inspirational posts.
