Random Acts of Kindness Week

February 12 – 18, 2007 is Random Acts of Kindness Week.  And as most know ZeVin Creations has a program called Paying It Forward With A Card.  We’ve discussed us launching it online but it never has truly taken place.  Well it will at the end of this week ( we don’t want to do anything till after VDay).

But today we wanted to provide you an inspirational poem by Paul Laurence Dunbar(poet from Harlem Renaissance era).  We hope this poem will be an inspiration to do some random act of kindness from now on – Celebrate Life!

Life by Paul Laurence Dunbar

A CRUST of bread and a corner to sleep in,
A minute to smile and an hour to weep in,
A pint of joy to a peck of trouble,
And never a laugh but the moans come double;
     And that is life!

A crust and a corner that love makes precious,
With a smile to warm and the tears to refresh us;
And joy seems sweeter when cares come after,
And a moan is the finest of foils for laughter;
     And that is life!
