“To achieve greatness, start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can” - Arthur Ashe, tennis champion -
The goal of the K. I. A. tour which is sponsored by Mirhez Images, Mirhez Publishing and Repentancemedia is to reach out to marginalized communities in the U.S. to encourage kindness as a way to reward others for there giving and foster an attitude of hope in each of these communities.
Most of us strive to live in harmony with our community. The movement to perform random acts of kindness while exemplary, isn’t necessarily the fastest way to build habits around kindness. It could be argued that acts of kindness are not random at all but in fact are completely natural and inherent to the human spirit. Instead, it is the intentional act of following those impulses that require conscious cultivation — and some hard work.
Ask yourself the question — what does kindness in the community mean to me? How does it benefit the community, and how can I cultivate it?
As we’ve learned, when you focus on the solution instead of the problem the results are extraordinary. The Golden Rule encourages us to treat others as we would like to be treated. If we treat others with kindness and respect, is it fair to expect that they respond in kind?
For most people, the answer is yes. It’s in our nature to imitate. Imitation allows for the transfer of cultural artifacts like customs, behaviors, and traditions, and plays a huge role in the creation of culture.
Kindness has the potential to catch fire in our culture and shape our communities for the better, but it has to start somewhere. Why not with Mirhez Images/Publishing/Repentancemedia
The next time you are on the receiving end of somebody’s kindness, consider doing more than simply thanking them — instead, pay it forward. Give back a little kindness of your own to the community at large
For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, [and] hating one another.
But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared,
Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; Paul the Apostle of Jesus the Christ
"If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him.” — Mahatma Gandhi
