A Haiku - Kindness
Do you remember an act of kindness you did?
We are all capable of kindness, just not as experienced as we can be.
An act of kindness
Done with love and compassion
Doesn't have to cost.
Open a door now,
Let someone else go through it.
Share of what you have.
Visit the lonesome,
Take along some food to share.
Send a "thank you" note.
Help a child to read,
Donate your extra clothing.
Lend a helping hand.
A smile can do good.
Kind words can do so much more.
They're sunshine you share.
We honor kindness.
Who you are speaks loudest then;
Tender acts of love.

What defines a true leader? It isn't just charisma and sensing their power. It isn't just making us afraid so we are mobilized. It's being true, honest, fair, up front, and out front. This Haiku examines leadership.
