November 13th is World Kindness Day. Which got me thinking, when was the last time I did something kind for a perfect stranger? Lucky for me, it wasn’t too long ago. Just last week I helped an elderly man return a movie to Redbox.
How did the opportunity present itself (I’m sure you’re asking yourself)?
I was at CVS buying candy (My name is Kimmy and I am a sugar addict) and an elderly man asked the CVS cashier if she knew how to return a Redbox movie. She did not.
I told the elderly man I could help.
When I returned to CVS the cashier asked me if I use ...... More

13 years after and each one of us remembers the hurt that was caused to the nation on September 11, 2001. Till this day, I still remember everything. I remember how old I was (13, Freshman Year of High School), where I was when I heard the news (Homeroom), and how I spent the rest of my day (with family and friends). I remember that many, brave, men and women stepped up and did their part to put our nation back together. To all of those we lost, you are gone but NEVER forgotten.For more information regarding 9/11 or the 9/11 Memorial Museum visit: http://www.911memorial.org/
