...we'll mail as thank-yous to writers of posted stories spotlit for our Featured Story, refreshed periodically. The first, by author Caroline Leavitt, recounts her agony in the hospital following the birth of her son. After reading her poignant story on our Home Page, check out links to her fine books below the byline.
Kindness resides in the same camp with those old-fashioned (often elusive) qualities of humility and grace, in short supply at least in our toxic politics these days. For a recent example of the latter, my good friend Stan recommends the acceptance speech of 2019 Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow of LSU. Stan, a past high school coach and math teacher, calls this seven-minute touching speech a feel-good experience. And we look forward to Stan's upcoming absorbing story of kindness. Hey, Stan, write that first sentence and things will flow! Caroline (and Stan as you'll see) are hard acts to follow but our stories of everyday kindness, of course, range from the straightforward to the profound, all worthy because of their personal inspiring nature. Yours will be memorable and meaningful to you. We'd love to hear why, so please share to get your story posted. Who was especially kind to you?
