It’s Christmas: Random acts of kindness…

  1. Os ~ and all other contributors and commentators: Merry Christmas and Blessed Holidays. Thank you for yet another thought-provoking post. I too have viewed Russians as characteristically culturally devoid of “kindness” — shows you the power of a 5 minute video and its message. Yeah~I’m partial to birds too, I fly with my Allies and have always considered each and everyone of you in this blog activity as part of the flock. With Peace.

  2. This video, more than anything else lately, is a wonderful example of the human spirit can lead to. It beats the one where a young man in his nice suit and car starts honking at an elderly woman trying to cross the street just as he gets to the the corner. I am usually quick to think of Russians in general as devoid of much empathy, mea culpa. Happy Holidays to all kind people on this site who so often stand up for those less fortunate than themselves.

  3. Excellent video. Thanks for the nostalgia. My dad was big on stopping the car to help ‘infirm’ folks across the street. It was a good lesson to learn.

  4. OS,

    You scare the hell out me of because of the reflection you give me of the friends I hang out with.

    God forbid what might happen if any one gets in our way, we have works to do, 24/7/365 and our shadows grow long.

    Think for your articles & I’ll pass your special magic along for others to grow personally from.

  5. Many Russians have a dash cam to protect themselves from fake collision games, and police malversation; I never thought about the good people it records too.

  6. I long for the day when extraordinary acts of kindless are not viewed as extraordinary.
