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).
