For some people, an act of kindness might simply be when they stop being cruel and selfish. When they understand that all people are the same except for smokers. Kindness can be addictive and that was my hope when I stopped for a long-waiting loaded brick truck to enter the main road. The truck driver was pleased and honked his horn in appreciation while turning. I beamed with my new recognition as a truck savior but then the truck stalled and caused a massive traffic pile up. Still, for that brief moment, the truck driver was happy knowing that a fast and lively car could take pity on a slow and tired truck during the Christmas rush.
