Simple Acts Mean a Lot
me, a small example of random kindness was the attempt of some people in
Moscow to hold the heavy doors in the subway stations while the next person
was coming in. It is almost a routine gesture of politeness in the USA,
but in the Soviet Union all people could be divided into two categories:
those keeping the doors and those slipping through without care.
example of random help would be to pick up a tree seed which fell on asphalt
or rock and to throw it on a good soil. These people are not gardeners,
they do not attempt to systematize their random kindness.
