Kindness Breaks Barriers

“Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.”
-Mark Twain

In a world that has over 6,000 languages and people of all backgrounds and cultures, it can be hard to find a connection to people who have a completely different way of life than yours. But if there’s one thing that everyone has, it’s a heart. Not just physically, but we have emotions and we react and get upset, or be happy, or excited, stressed, hurt, surprise, fear…etc. Despite language barriers, kindness can transcend these barriers. They can break them down and create beautiful connections between people who may come from a small island to someone who lives in a big city. Kindness is a universal language that people who may not be fluent in each other’s native tongue can understand and feel. Everyone is fighting their own battle that you may not be aware of despite their facade of normalcy on the outside. We can pretend to be okay, but even then sometimes we will break down and hurt a little. But an act of kindness can make someone’s day a little brighter, their fight a little lighter.

Let’s show our tender side,
