Today I’d like to talk to you about kindness. But don’t worry, I won’t talk about courtesy, good manners, pleasantries or etiquette. I’ll begin by saying that kindness is not a sentiment that we can cultivate within ourselves without any kind of external manifestation but a mode of relating that needs to be practised. It’s a form of interaction that reveals itself through acts of sharing, solidarity and friendship. It’s in this light that I’d like to discuss it here.
