Kindness

 

As M.K.Gandhi stepped aboard a train one day, one of his shoes slipped off and landed on the track. He was unable to retrieve it as the train was moving. To the amazement of his companions, Gandhi calmly took off his other shoe and threw it on the track to land close to the first. Asked by a fellow passenger why he did so, Gandhi smiled.

“ The poor man who finds the shoes lying on the track will now have a pair he can use”, he replied.

 

It just takes a little will to be kind. Not power, not riches, not time….just a little will. You just need to find it in your heart.
