Heroes of Kindness - 2021 Edition

Dr Roshan Radhakrishnan

It is 2021. And even though the world just seems to keep getting darker, I am not ready to give up. And as it turns out, there are billions like me. You just need to know where to look to find the light and smile again.

I've been collecting Heroes of Kindness - normal everyday people from across the world who do kind deeds and help others - and showcasing them here on the blog since 2017. They deserve to be celebrated, after all... this is my way to letting them know their compassion matters.

Welcome to the 2021 Edition of Heroes of Kindness

Let me know what you think.

  1. It's a great story and, in fact, I can share another one. I have a cousin who lives in Texas (only lost his power for one day) and he and his wife took another family for the several days that family was without power or water. It was a terrible situation and I'm happy there were angels there for some who would have been in a bad way otherwise. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com
