World Kindness Day – introduced in 1998 by the World Kindness Movement, a coalition of NGOs – is a global day to promote the importance of being kind to people around you, yourself, and to the world. It is observed internationally on November 13 every year.
In the words of the Dalai Llama, “Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.” This was my Mum’s creed and is mine.
Brian Bilston has very kindly given me permission to post another of his poems, this one especially for today, Kindness. I love how he captures ideas so cleverly. Wouldn’t it be just wonderful if the world were to be as full of kindness as suggested in the last verse. .
