Last week someone committed an random act of kindness for my family. You can read about that here . I noticed this morning that our site adaddyblog.com had a visitor from Russia, and that there was a link back to the following YouTube video. The title reads, “Мир не без добрых людей.” In case like me you don’t speak Russian, it translates, “The world is not without good people”.
I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of all the negative dash-cam videos we see in the news. This skewed view of the world might lead one to believe that people are basically bad. That is not the view of the world I want our 4½-year-old daughter have. This short video compilation of Russian dash-cam clips illustrates the opposite—what I’ve always believed—people are basically good.
I’ll echo the person who posted the video in calling for all of us all to: “Совершай добрые дела!” Translation: “Do Good Deeds!” Have you ever had anyone perform an act of random kindness for you or someone you know? I’d love for you to share it in the comments below. Also, please feel free to share a bit of positive news by Retweeting or share this on Facebook.
