I drove on while the announcer droned on. Gas prices were going higher again because of the competitive speculation on Wall Street. The race for the Presidency was getting nastier and nastier, Rioting had broken out when fans of a sports team had gone wild, celebrating their team's championship.
Finally, I could take no more and turned off the radio. Silence seemed preferable to listening to anything else about the crazy, competitive society we live in. I slowed down as I entered a local town and watched the people as I drove by.
A tall muscular man was helping an elderly lady out of a car and helping her position her walker so she could go into a local store.
A smiling woman was tossing birdseed into her backyard while a dozen Robins flew down to enjoy the feast being laid out before them.
A young man was walking along, carrying his two year old daughter safely in his arms. He tickled her gently when she pulled the hat off his head and they both laughed. I laughed too as I looked at all of this kindness. It felt like a glimpse of Heaven. The radio may have been off in my car, but in my heart I was still singing.
In truth, this world could use a little more kindness and a lot less competition. Kindness makes us all winners in this life. Kindness reminds us that we are all God's Children. Kindness shows us that we don't have to beat others in this world.
我所感到生命的让我们觉得自己是上帝之子，不需要打败这个世上的任何人。 是，这个世界可以多一些美好，少一些竞争。带着 让我们每个人都是赢家，
We just have to love them. May all of your moments here then be full of kindness, love, and joy. And may your only competition be with yourself: to be the best possible you that you can be.
