Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. -Plato
It only takes a moment to take the focus off of ourselves and shift it to those around us.
The Virtue of Charity
Many view the act of charity as financial aid to the less fortunate. But charity goes beyond gifts of money. We can be charitable in our actions to those who need it. We can lend a helping hand to those who are suffering physically, mentally, and spiritually. How far can a kind smile, a kind word, or a kind act go? Sometimes these gifts go much farther than money.
