Being Kind

A little kindness can go along way, this is a true story from a friend of mine:

"My first time driving after 10 days sick in bed and in standstill traffic during a major downpour, I sneezed and didn't realise my foot had came off the brake & the car was moving! It rolled in to the car in front and instead of words of annoyance or anger, the driver asked me gently what happened and tearfully I explained and apologised. He continued to speak to me gently and kindly wishing me good health and a safer trip home to get well."
