I have always felt sympathy and compassion for the kids I see at
school walking all alone, for the ones that sit in the back of the
room while everyone snickers and makes fun of them. But I never did
anything about it. I guess I figured that someone else would. I did
not take the time to really think about the depth of their pain.
Then one day I thought what if I did take a moment out of my busy schedule
to simply say hello to someone without a friend or stop and chat with
someone eating by herself?
And I did. It felt good to brighten up someone else’s life. How did I
know I did?
Because I remembered the day a simple kind hello changed my life forever.
