The world needs more kindness

Dear Abby: Congratulations to “Trying to Be Nice” (June 6) for her random acts of kindness. The world needs more of it. Let me point out, however, that being nice isn’t just about doing specific charitable tasks. It is something that applies every moment of every day, and as the axiom says, “Charity begins at home.”

It can mean paying a compliment to a family member or friend, refraining from a hurtful comment at work or in school, smiling to a stranger on the street, willingly doing a chore at home (even if it’s “not my job”), or something as simple as cleaning up one’s own mess after lunch. To quote another axiom: Little things mean a lot.
