Try a Little Kindness

As a child, I loved Glen Campbell’s “Try a Little Kindness.” As an adult, I feel it is priceless. I realize that respect or basic decency does not suit the presidency. Perhaps impressionable minds who think the president’s emotional rants are acceptable will be released from this toxic programming to choose the religion of kindness, love, and a sense of humor.

Kindness is a mindset that is opposite of condemnation, punishment, and greed. Condemnation and punishment are obvious, but greed might seem an unusual opposite choice for kindness. Greed is theft, selfishness, and survival mechanisms. Therefore, the opposite of greed is sharing when someone is lacking. The person who shares believes he or she cannot lose by sharing but only gain. In my perspective, kindness is built on three factors, which are appreciation, compliments, and compassion.

If you see your brother standing by the road
With a heavy load from the seeds he’s sowed
And if you see your sister falling by the way
Just stop and say, you’re going the wrong way
You got to try a little kindness
Yes show a little kindness
Just shine your light for everyone to see
And if you try a little kindness
Then you’ll overlook the blindness
Of narrow-minded people on the narrow-minded streets
Don’t walk around the down and out
Lend a helping hand instead of doubt
And the kindness that you show every day
Will help someone along their way
You got to try a little kindness
Yes show a little kindness
Just shine your light for everyone to see
And if you try a little kindness
Then you’ll overlook the blindness
Of narrow-minded people on the narrow-minded streets
You got to try a little kindness
Yes show a little kindness
Just shine your light for everyone to see
And if you try a little kindness
Then you’ll overlook the blindness
Of narrow-minded people on the narrow-minded streets
