Kindness to strangers: just the beginning - Program 323

Guests: Rita Smith, Chris Snow, Polina Dobriyan

Some acts of kindness stir the hearts of millions—heroic actions such as those of an Iraqi civilian who risked his life to help free American soldier Jessica Lynch. Other acts of kindness disappear in a flash. A genuine smile from a sales clerk. A patient driver who stops to let us cross the street. A word of encouragement in a dark moment. There are acts of kindness that change lives, and there are actions that simply help us get through the day. So how significant is kindness? What lies behind it? Hear from people who found kinship with a stranger in a spontaneous act of kindness. Find out what their different experiences have in common, and what one moment of care reveals about the constancy of God’s presence—the tangible presence of infinite Love—and hear what one act of kindness can lead to.
