It's easy to assume that we live in a scary, hateful world. Everyday the news is filled with stories that show the worst in humanity. It doesn't help that we barely connect with one another, living our days consumed with our needs and responsibilities.
This may be what we are led to believe, since our humanity is tested everyday of our lives. Whether it's the simple act of stopping your busy day to give someone directions, complementing someone out of the blue, or simply smiling to a complete stranger. These actions may appear trivial but they matter.
People may live in a fast-paced world but when someone needs help, the natural reaction folks have is not to hide but rather to assist, even if the individual or persons are complete strangers.
