Joined 3 years ago from Scarborough, Ontario. Last activity 2 weeks ago.

Hello my name is Helena. I reside in the beautiful city of Scarborough, which is located in the Southern part of Ontario, Canada.

In my daily commute to and from work, I constantly witness the kindness of strangers. On the downside, I also witness their rudeness as well.

I was inspired to write this article after receiving two random acts of kindness in one morning. After arriving at the main entrance of a building which housed an office where I was scheduled for a meeting, I found myself locked out of the heavy guarded office since I was a bit early. One of the tenants noticed me standing at the entrance and came up to me and lent me his cell phone so that I could call to announce my arrival. From there onwards, it was all smooth sailing. Later that morning, as I hopped aboard my train, I felt my feet slipping and felt myself falling backwards. This occurred at the chiming of the bells indicating that the train door was closing. A kind young man quickly noticed my dilemma and placed his arm around my back and pushed me into the train. I was very thankful and expressed my gratitude to my rescuer. It is my hope that this reading will inspire and spur you on to bestow a ‘Simple Act of Kindness’ to someone today.
