This week the Office of Multicultural Affairs is promoting random acts of kindness throughout campus and the community to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The random acts of kindness are to spread the good will of Dr. King and to remind everyone of his message. A random act of kindness can make a person’s day or influence others to be more kind. An act could be anything from saying hello to a stranger or helping someone carry his or her groceries. Simple friendly acts such as these can make a big difference in someone’s day; it could even be the difference between a good day and a bad day. These random acts of kindness will hopefully create a chain reaction and affect many people throughout campus and Chestertown.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. has had such a significant influence and positive effect on many people. One way Washington college students can honor him would be to promote good deeds. We are a small campus and need too support one another, and random acts of kindness are a great way to do so! Because we are so small it is even more important to be kind to one another. Seeing the same people everyday can be a lot more enjoyable if you get along and are respectful of each other.

The random act of kindness event is a great way to brighten someone’s day and to feel good about one’s self. An act of kindness has many benefits and can cause many positive reactions. Throughout this week try to show some appreciation for others by performing acts of kindness, and don’t be afraid to reach out to others to give them a helping hand. Just remember the love and compassion Dr. King promoted throughout his life as we all try to be more kind this week.
