"No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted."
--Aesop, writer of fables
As humans, we're supposed to treat each person with kindness. As a teacher, I always try my best to do this. For instance, I start the year off by writing each of my students a personal letter, and each day when students come in to class, I try to welcome each one with a smile and be as helpful as possible.
The point is, sometimes you try to be nice, and it doesn't seem to matter. But, does it?
I was shocked. It made me realize that being nice does matter, even if the person doesn't say thank you (or waits four years to say it!).
Renegade Challenge: Do something nice for someone who you think won't say thank you. Then, wait a while (maybe even a few years) and see if it was worth it.
