Today, I saw a simple, yet wonderful act of kindness. Two brothers, who looked to be 8 and 10 years of age were walking down the street. Suddenly, the younger brother hoisted the older brother on his back and carried him across the street. As the older brother dangled across his shoulder, I saw that the older brother’s foot was bleeding. When I complimented the younger brother for his kindness, he just said that “he hadn’t wanted his brother to get dirt in the cut.”
If we all would help another so easily and effortlessly.
The scene made me think more about being my brother’s keeper.
Have you had a chance to be your brother’s keeper today? Better yet, did you act on that opportunity?
