Performed a small act of kindness for a group of strangers.
I chose to say thank you, in person, to a group of people that I have been seeing for years.
The Washington County Peace Vigil meets in front of the Beaverton Public library every Wednesday. My understanding is this group of people started protesting the Afghanistan war shortly after 9/11. Every night they meet for an hour with protest signs, rain or shine. Those who support the effort usually honk … except me.
That’s because my horn is broken.
Tonight, I rectified that. Not by fixing my horn. But by going up to the group members and saying thanks for being persistent in a cause they believe in. And for trying to bring a little more peace to the world.
Every kind act counts.
