The Cure For Cruelty

The only cure for a cruel world is kindness.
Only tears can strip away anger.
Humility in the face of adversity is a virtue.
Wickedness is only fueled by more wickedness.
Peace isn't always the answer.
Nor is admitting defeat.
Sometimes fighting is good.
The only cure for a cruel world is kindness.
Be kind. Be patient. Don't give in.
Cowardice is a vice.

Audrey Hunt,

Thank you so much.

This is a powerful and beautiful message, Alexander. Why is it that folks fail to realize that kindness is the cure - the answer?

Well done. I love it!

I sure agree that kindness is the answer. Kindness opens doors and more importantly hearts.
