My friend's oldest daughter, a very thoughtful and generous soul, was talking with a six-year-old today about the terrorist attacks on London. In an e-mail to her mom, she said, "She asked me what a terrorist attack was. I told her a random act of violence against human beings. Also told her we are going to combat the senseless acts of violence with random acts of kindness."
Her plan is that every Thursday, she will do something nice anonymously, like send $10 to a name picked randomly from a phone book, along with a card like the one found here (along with some more great anonymous good deeds. It may not bring world peace, but then again, it just may bring us one step closer.
