Random Act of Kindness
For my random act of kindness I decided to help out my neighbor. She’s in about her 80s or 90s and so she has her daughter or someone she knows mow her grass for her. So for my random act of kindness I decided to mow her grass without telling her or anybody about it. About a week went by and nobody asked about it and I thought nobody was going to notice at first. Then she asked my mom is she knew who mowed her grass for her. My mom told her it was me and she tried to pay me for doing it. I let her know that I was just doing it to be nice though and it was actually an assignment in my class so I couldn’t accept the money. She seemed happy and said the assignment was a good one but she remembered back when she was growing up and people used to do little things like this more often. When I heard this I remembered back to when I was a younger kid and even though it wasn’t as far back as she remembers I still remember people being friendlier and helping other more often than they do now.
I enjoyed this assignment; it made me feel good about myself. I liked how it was hands on and affected other people in a positive way instead of just doing book work or answering questions. I could see that I made her happy and in turn that made me happy too. I feel like small things like these are becoming less common as we move forward and are moving in the wrong direction when it comes to this.
