    Kindness and love. It may sound basic but my grandmother not only taught but showed through her own life how important it is to love one another. No matter the age, class, background, appearance etc. How we know who you really are is by the way you treat others. Goes without saying, everyone deserves some kindness. So when you have nothing else to give, give love and kindness, it makes the world a better place
