Praise is multiplied by the number of people who hear it. It is one thing to thank a person privately and tell how their character benefited our lives, but a whole different thing to tell about the character they demonstrated to their boss or a crowd of hundreds people.
Give a Good Report to Others
As of Thursday evening, the picture
had generated more than 417,000 likes, had been shared more than 138,000 times and had received more than 30,000 comments. It was all to tell of a simple act of kindness which highlighted the character of a police officer in New York. Do people do acts of kindness to the tune of $100? Yes, every day, but when the report of that good deed is shared with hundreds of thousands, that twenty-five year old officer is appreciated all the more.
In a day when evil is highlighted and underscored through news outlets and movies, very few people get recognition for doing good. Next time you see a deed of kindness or character demonstrated, thank the person and go a step farther and share the good report with others.
