Here is this small text and today's photos to say: THANK YOU FOR YOUR KINDNESS!
Have you ever been surprised because a stranger was kind to you?!...
A lot of people don't really notice it, but they got used to the lack of kindness...
And when it happens, it becomes a feast.
Relationships became so hard, that the normal thing to find is dryness, strangeness, even cruelty.
It seems that everybody is ready to defend themselves, but not prepared to hear sweet words and gestures of love and kindness.
Kindness became a luxury gesture, something of a museum, antique...
It became a memory.
There are the ones that do not trust a kind man...
They'll say his gay, straight away.
Women who are kind are seen as strange or false.
The world just lost the reference of kindness, politeness, genteelness, mannerly, graciousness, courteousness.
To be offended on traffic became a routine thing. To be rude to the ones that earn their money serving us became normal.
You see a lot of ugly faces, impatiente, intolerance and bad humour the whole time; even inside our homes.
I don't want that!!! I will never get used to it!; NO!
I want kindness in my life. I want to be kind to other people too.
I want to be treated with respect, with tenderness.
I want to be treated like people, that's what kindness really is...
Youth think they no longer need to give their seat to older people on the bus, on subway or help them cross the street.
Man lost their politeness towards women.
Women became more independent and think they no longer need men to be a "chevalier" because it's not modern; it's oldfashioned.
I want kindness from men, women, children and strangers.
I want the soft gesture, the phonecall saying thanks, the flowers, the chocolates, the welcoming note, the smile on the street, the courteousy...
I want the simple look of sincerity, because to be true is also to be kind...
I want kindness because of kindness itself! No matters how small the gesture is!; how whispered the word comes out...
I want kindness because it is needed!; it's essencial; it's what we're meant to be."
