acts of kindness. Is it just me or have ppl lost any semblance of respect? Small son has been taught to open doors for women. Both by instruction and the example of the man who helps me raise him. It is rare the woman that says thank you. I just want to kick them in the butt. And the ppl who have no problem verbalizing the foulest language ever. Small children arent a deterrant. I want to kick them in the butt too. My mother would have pulled my top lip over the top of my head and the bottom lip under my chin. Bar of soap in hand. . . But yesterday i witnessed a young mother with a small child in tow listen as a stranded traveller told her tale. She was out of money and had to get to little rock, arkansas. The young mom said she had been blessed in life and reached in her wallet and handed the woman 40 bucks. Enough to get where she was going and probably a burger too. Really touched me. The woman burst into tears and hugged her. A wonderful thing to witness.
