well, i dont know how random this is, but within 10 miles of my university the US government keeps children in cages. my office staff ran a toy-drive at christmas time for the kids. we accumulated literally hundreds of toys for them.

when we went to drop them off, the guards told us that nothing could be given to the children. not toys, not soap, not food, not treats, not nothing.

so, my staff contacted a children's cancer ward in a hospital and dropped all the toys off with them. and one of the staff even dressed up as santa.  ;D
I believe Gandhi is the only person who knew about real democracy — not democracy as the right to go and buy what you want, but democracy as the responsibility to be accountable to everyone around you. Democracy begins with freedom from hunger, freedom from unemployment, freedom from fear, and freedom from hatred.
- Vandana Shiva

This thread was about kindness but has devolved into hating on the Trump administration and it's policies typical Celticsblog/celticsstrong. 


So Godwin's law, states that sooner or later a conversation would devolve into one about Hitler. "As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Hitler approaches 1"; that is, if an online discussion goes on long enough, sooner or later someone will compare someone or something to Adolf Hitler or his deed :laugh:  We need a Goodman's law that on Celticstrong sooner or later the conversation will devolve into one about Pres. Trump. :laugh:

To receive a random act of kindness, view the extremely important speech by Mike Pence concerning China:

    Seriously! It would be nice if this thread didn’t turn into a political back and forth.

Great Post!  I was on a business trip with a rental car. I always have the E-ZPass in my car but the rental didn't. So there is a ton of traffic and I am in the E-ZPass only lane when I realize, oh crap I don't have my car! I quickly put my blinker on and start moving into the money lane. This guy gets all p---ed off and starts screaming at me, I was like sorry I have no choice!
So when I get up there I paid my toll and then paid his as well, he was right behind me.  A little while latter he pulls beside me and laughs and says thank you like a hundred times! It was a great feeling to go from total anger to a really nice feeling in seconds!!

 If anyone with a pup has ever thought it would be cool to make him or her a therapy dog it’s an awesome gig. We did it through a company called “Dog B.O.N.E.S.”
   All it takes is 3 appointments and the last one is really just putting a graduation hat on your dog, getting a certificate, tee shirt , a vest for the dog to wear, a kerchief..
  I’m trying to think of the cost. It wasn’t much. I think it was somewhere between 15-30 bucks, if I remember.
  The 1st two meetings are just you walking with your dog on a leash and asking the teacher who is sitting in a wheelchair to “ please lock your brake.” Once she does you just walk around the wheelchair to her other side and say would you like to pet him or her, prove the dog will sit on command and won’t jump up on someone. The meet ups were only an hour.
   You are then emailed listings of all kinds of requests on a regular basis in different areas. You can participate as much or as little as you want. We did a regular nursing home visit and after 4th visit our dog was such a hit that when the elevators opened on the 3rd floor we were greeted by a semicircle of awesome people in wheelchairs eager to see our little guy. We were blown away. My wife handed out pictures of our dog and a bunch of residents hung them up in their room. One lady woke up to our dog by her side laughing seeing his face. It was amazing.
  Another great one is kids that have some struggle reading can read to dogs at a library. Dogs don’t judge do the kids are more at ease.
  We did a bereavement camp for girls in Amesbury, brought him to hospitals. There’s so many things you can do.

Cool stories. Thanks for sharing them!
