The Kindness Of Others
I read about this video the other night and I knew I needed to see it. I was blown away by the fact that this monkey cared enough and it was a part of his genetic makeup to spend 20 minutes helping to revive the other monkey. In our world, where sometimes we only hear about negative things or sadness in our country and others, I think it is so powerful and inspiring to watch this act of true kindness in nature. This week, I’d like for you to pass on the positive feelings and write down a story of true kindness that you know about. It can be something that you read, something that you’ve done, heard about, or that someone you know has been a part of but share the kindness story you know. If you don’t know a kindness story, create your own by finding time to be kind to someone else (preferably someone who doesn’t expect it) and make their day. Let’s have a Friday where we read about the amazingness of others and use their inspiration to make us strive to be better!

Once Mrs.Bottosso told us that she went to the StarBucks Drive thru and she was told someone bought her coffee,she then bought the drink of the person behind her.The worker told her that this has been a chain of over 50 costumers! I thought that it was amazing that one person decided to make someone' s day and because of them,over 50 other's did the same.This is an example of how one small thing you do can make a big difference.

Whenever my parents keep on working and working non-stop I feel bad because I know that I should be the one helping them so this week whenever they have a lot of work to do I will put myself in their shoes and try to feel how much work it is. So few days ago I was helping my dad clean up the kitchen so no one needs to do it after dinner. So I started to clean up the kitchen and my dad said thank you after.

One day me and my mom were in the car driving to the mall. When we stopped at a red light a homeless man and his dog were coming around to each car to ask for some money. My mom and I felt very bad so we decided on giving him some money. After giving him that money I felt very good because I was helping someone who was not as fortunate.

The lady was really happy and thanked my dad!

After hearing about Leo's story and hearing about so many people being kind and giving him a chance. For example the people helping at the refugee camps and the UN helping Leo come to Canada. Also when he came to Canada everybody gave him a chance. For example asking him to speak publicly. After that he started a club for refugees to make friends and now he is trying to raise money to build a library in Liberia. So you see being nice rubs off on one another. It keeps going because if someone is nice to another person and that person is nice to another person it just keeps going. That is my example of kindness.

When I was 8 years old I was playing soccer then 2 teenagers wanted to vs me and my 5 friends. After when we suggested who should be defence, who should be striker, and who should be goalkeeper. One of the teenagers were running straight to the goalkeeper which is me and then when he tried to kick the ball he decided to slide kick me. I was crying and I couldn't get up then the teenagers ran away while my friends went to tell my dad about it. My dad came over and helped me up and got me home safe. My mom was mad about it because she always told me not to go outside everyday but my dad is happy about it because he knows that I am not always staying home watching tv al the time or playing on my iPad I am doing something active that my dad loves about me. My dad took me to the hospital and took X-rays on my leg and I had a broken leg, my dad put a cast on my left leg so it can heal for about 3 months so I never went to school for 3 months.

One time when I was playing soccer by myself, I tried to shoot and then I rolled over the ball and fell asleep on the ground. I slept for about half an hour until someone came over to me and helped me up. They got me some ice and made sure that I could get back home safely. That made me feel good and also kind of guilty so the next time that I saw that person, I gave them five dollars and thanked them.

My Mom sometimes doesn't get enough sleep. She works a busy job, commutes 2 hours a day at least and takes care of my family. To make a difference I get up early in the morning and set the table, I get my breakfast ready, make my bed and make sure I'm ready to leave for school on time. I also try to leave my Mom's work supplies out (like her computer bag) and I plug her phone in the night before if she forgets. Thank you for listening!!!!

As most of you guys know, my great grandfather was in WWII. This year one of the members from vintage wings of Canada made an articale called "In Search Of Lost Virtues". Six pilots teaching us lessons about death and living. My great grandfather was obviously one of the six. His name was under sacrafice. Sacrifice may not in fact be a virtue, it may be something unavoidable, something you have to do. But putting yourself in a place where the sacrifice required was death is a virtue akin to courage. All of Rosey’s squadron mates were making sacrifices, but Rosey had much more to lose than most of them, probably all of them. Most of the young men on squadrons during the Second World War were young unattached bachelors. Many may have had a sweetheart at home waiting for their return, but Rosey was married and had two young sons, one of whom he had barely even met. There is no doubt that after four years of flying and two of fighting, Arnold Roseland was weary, tired of the deprivation and longing to go home to his wife Audrey and to hold in his arms his new son, Ronald.

With my mom starting her new job and my dad going to and from Toronto everyday for work it has been quite challenging to keep our house tidy or even together. It has been hard to find time to even clean my room or do my laundry, because we have been going back and forth from friends and family who are helping take care of us, I know this sound like nothing but it drives me crazy if my room isn't organized. Anyways after the recent snow fall it has been bugging our whole family that we had not shoveled we just couldn't find a good time. A few days later I surprisingly had 20 more minutes till I had to leave for school, so I volunteered to go shovel the driveway, about 15 minutes later the driveway was clear of snow and I was pretty impressed with my shoveling skills. From this experience I learnt to always be helpful around the house especially with my mom back to work.

I feel really bad when my parents have to do EVERYTHING around my house, so sometimes I clean up after myself, and help my parents with stuff. I like helping somebody out from time to time, also I like to do stuff other people want to do with me. Thanks! -Connor

This week on the news there was a story of a woman dying from Cancer in Hamilton she is so sick that she can not leave the hospital. She had 1 wish before she was going die and that was to see her horse named Luna from Milton one last time. A organization called Zachary's Paws arranged to bring the horse to the front of the hospital so the woman could see her horse for one last time.I think that this was great that Zachary's paws organized this for that woman before she died.
