Random Acts of Kindness

Dr. Laura,

In this increasingly devisive world I had a troublesome December. My wallet was stolen at the grocery store, the customer service reps were so used to crime in the area, they frankly could have cared less. I got the flu and then 6 inches of snow fell on Salt Lake.  As I was pulling myself together on a Saturday morning to go shovel the driveway and walks, I saw a little girl not more than 6 with her father going door to door shoveling each house in the neighborhood. It was amazing, they were not neighbors that I knew, I think they were sent by a supernatural power. I will never forget the random act of kindness that was shown to me by these wonderful people.  It restored my faith in mankind and couldn't have come at a better time. You ask how children learn to give? Here is your answer: by loving caring parents who give freely of their time.
