Being nice isn't just right, it is essential.
I recently came across an inspirational blog called Operation Nice, whose author, Melissa, writes about how kindness can change the world. She frequently gives her readers "nice" assignments. This week's assignment: compliment a stranger. I think it's a wonderful idea and I've tried to dish out as many compliments as possible this week.
She also drew my attention to the Charter for Compassion. It is the golden rule fleshed out as an emphatic call to action to treat "everyone without exception with absolute justice, equity, and respect." Please, if you have time, watch the video and/or visit the website here.
Have a wonderful Friday, everyone. Go out of your way to be nice to someone. It might just make your day.
