It’s been more than a year since I wrote and posted my last piece here – during the “peak” (how many peaks have there been? lol) of the current pandemic. ‘Kindness Rules’ has received many positive responses not only here but also in other venues where it had been posted and shared. We hope we are seeing the end of the COVID-19 pandemic and yes, the best things and persons that I / we remember to this day are the kind words and deeds – messages of care and compassion, sympathy and the kindest persons who helped us survive. More challenges face us, more are coming – current climate change and its effects, biodiversity loss, fake news, anti-science moves, the invasion of Ukraine, poverty, etc. – we have to remain vigilant – but we can always move and help to be part of the solution but still stick to our motto – Let us be kind to each other! – Always!
