A random act of kindness can go a long way! The ongoing pandemic has made many people want to see the world unite together and be kind to one another. Especially in today's circumstances, as we are amidst the third wave of the Coronavirus, we yearn to find motivation and inspiration from surroundings that shall help us be better citizens of society. Since going out is risky, we look towards the internet to find kind stories of people all around the world. Today, we have found a story of kindness, all the way from New York, that has been touching the hearts of people in different parts of the world. A teacher was met with a pleasant surprise on her way to school and what took place on the street had impressed her so much that she wanted to share it with the whole world! Take a look:
The most amazing thing happened to me this morning, and I just have to share…
I was walking to my school - arms full of classroom supplies and doughnuts for my students - when a man approached me with a gentle “excuse me, miss” to get my attention. 1/6— Maria Iorlano (@Mariaiorl) January 28, 2022
I pulled my headphones out, expecting a question about directions to the nearest train station or open deli. Instead, I experienced a miracle.— Maria Iorlano (@Mariaiorl) January 28, 2022
He asked me if I was a teacher.
I said yes.
He asked me if the doughnuts were for my students.
I said yes. 2/6
When Maria Lorlano was walking to her school with supplies and doughnuts (for her students), a man stopped her. Expecting a question about directions, she pulled out her earphone to help solve the man's query. But instead, he asked her if she was a teacher and if the doughnuts were for her students. When she replied yes, the man handed her a $ 50 bill and said he wanted to pay for the kids treat! Dumbstruck by the kind stranger's gesture, she hopes to thank this man properly by making his story of kindness go viral.
People were in awe by this story! After reading about it, here's what some people responded:
One man's small gesture of kindness not only had the power to make the teacher's day but also brought a smile on the students for whom the doughnuts were for; and now, it has managed to touch the hearts of many through the internet.
