    We do have these opportunities everyday, but the ones really going through the storm are the ones who actually listen.

    Everyone had their own experiences, what I feel, we ought to listen when comfortable, countless people offer good advice, we jump from ignorance to comparatives and nothing works.

    A beautiful story about random kindness, strangers and the intersections that present us with opportunities to do good. Thanks, @Paul Kearley🐝 for sharing this. We shouldn't need so many reminders to stop, take a breath and practice kindness, but many times we do. Myself included. I really love this post and I am so glad that I had a few minutes to read it and contribute to such a wonderful conversation in the comments.

    This post is enlightening. We seem to live in a world of hurriedness and impatience, not stopping to give someone a hand. "You can make more friends in 5 minutes by being interested in others than you can in five years by trying to get them interested in you." is a great quote by Carnegie, one we should live by.

    #28 @Paul Kearley🐝, "The hurrier I go, the behinder I get." Love the quote your grandmother used! Sounds like something my Scottish Grandmother would have said. And, well said below, "The best way to convey these is to "Be" these lessons." I think focusing on patience is part of the lesson. Patience of the mind can clear the mind so we are able to think on a deeper level and consider others as well.

    I think this story speaks volumes about what is still right with our society. As @Charles David Upchurch points out our old heroes don't cut the grade anymore. But this story is about the little heroes that have always been with us and are people whose habit we do well to imitate sincerely. Thanks @Paul Kearley🐝.

    #32 The best way to convey these lessons is to "Be" these lessons. As Ghandi said, "Be the change you wish to see in the world". Thanks for your comment @Charles David Upchurch

    I hope we can convey these lessons to coming generations.

    The old heroes have turned into villains, and today's superheroes are no longer inspiring greatness of spirit, nor traits like patience and acceptance.

    Random acts of kindness and paying it forward happen most, and happen best, when we are not so absorbed with ourselves that we cannot see and act compassionately towards our neighbors' needs.

    #30 #29 Well then, I might have a tiny bit to do with the kindness impetus but the hashtag was @Sarah Elkins' inspiration!

    All things considered, I think we've found a place where we can practice #KindnessReigns2016

    #29 No, I would agree. I simply will not take credit for that which is not mine :-). Also, this post will run on my twitter feed several times per day for the next five days using the #kindnessReigns2016 hashtag (and a few others)! Have a great day Paul and thanks again for a great post!

    #27 Thanks @Aaron 🐝 Skogen I suppose it matters not who coined the hashtag as long as it gets used, But that being said, Thanks @Deb 🐝 Helfrich and Sarah @Sarah Elkins for your pay it forward thinking.

    #23 @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher even though I know how I SHOULD be, I am often faced with situations where I am in a hurry and someone is in my way and I "toot my horn" when I know better. I retold that piece to remind me again of a quote my grandmother used to say: "The hurrier I go, the behinder I get". Timeless. Since that incident a month ago, I have repaid this kindness a couple of times. I think it would be great to have some kind of record as to just how many people stop and think and respond positively as a result of this post. #KindnessReigns2016

    #22 Thanks @Deb 🐝 Helfrich It is a good option to remember that there is ALWAYS a kinder option than impulse and reaction. I appreciate you taking the time to comment.

    What a great story you shared @Paul Kearley🐝! Admirable man. I might have sat honking my horn too. I have a feeling the healthcare professional in me would have kicked in and I might have gotten out of my car to make sure she wasn't having a heart attack or something of that nature. He was smart, and in tune. Poor woman was having anxiety. I think we can all miss opportunities to help but when we see someone else help another, it's a good reminder to stay alert to the needs of others. I'm working on patience the older I get!

    I wanted to save this for awhile and it was well worth the anticipation, @Paul Kearley🐝. I used to be the impatient type, especially behind the wheel, as driving comes naturally to me. After reading this eye-opening story, I doubt I will forget that there is another option.
