Stories of everyday kindness. Today, after realizing I left my cardigan on public transit and knowing I couldn’t enter prison, where I teach, with my shoulder’s exposed, I stood on the corner in a small upstate NY town pondering my next move. A middle aged woman in an SUV pulled up to help me figure out where to access clothing stores. When I told her my story she welcomed me into her passenger seat and gave me a lift to the nearest main drag, where I bought a long sleeved number and felt cozy physically and in heart. Her kindness propelled my spirit to give my all to the women I’ve missed and enter this new semester remembering the deep goodness in all. #randomactsofkindess
