Acts of Kindness Happen Every Day

There is a viral story right now about a New York cop who was photographed in the process of an act of kindness. He didn’t know he was being photographed, he had noticed this homeless man without shoes and the cop went and bought him some boots and socks and gave it to him.

Simple. I know people do things like this every day and not for attention.

This leads me into another topic. How do you feel about picking on people who aren’t allowed to defend themselves? What if that person is a cop? What if that person is a government employee?

I have noticed a tendency lately for people to speak maliciously about police because of isolated incidences.  They really are isolated incidences I believe. I believe that cops do more than give parking tickets, they are more like this cop in New York acting spontaneously and generously to a stranger than the opposites we may have seen being portrayed.

This also leads to another website I was reading today that portrayed government employees as terrorists. Of course this website wants to portray the government acting like a big bully because they profit from that fear because then people go to them and are afraid.

I know there are people who are insensitive in their jobs, but not is not the main. Some people have hard jobs to do, but we need and have asked them to do those jobs and I recommend we all open our eyes and see the person behind the job.

Knock those blinders off our own eyes,  and be glad we have good people out there doing the tough jobs that we ask them to do.
