WHY WE NEED A LITTLE ACT OF KINDNESS

A LETTER FROM ABRAHAM LINCOLN TO GENERAL ROSECRANS, COMMANDER OF A CONFEDERATE OFFICER.


" I have examined personally all the papers in the Lyons case, and I cannot see that it is a matter for executive interference. So I turn it over to you with full confidence that you will do what is just and right; only begging you, my dear General, to do nothing in reprisal for the past-only what is necessary to ensure security for the future; and remind you that we are not fighting against a foreign foe, but our brothers and that our aim is not to break their spirits but only to bring back their old allegiance. Conquer by kindness-let that be our policy". 

Very truly yours, A. Lincoln. In the words of Albert Einstein; The ideals which have lighted my way, and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been kindness, beauty and truth.


#Today, as we go about our daily lives and activities, let us all remember that a little act of kindness shown, given or received can bring back a lost or dead hope#.
