Today is the remembrance of September 11, 2001. You might wish to share a random act of kindness as a gesture of good will and human spirit. For younger learners, speaking about kindness may be a way to soften the discussion of the tragedy of that horrific day fifteen years ago. While the media is focusing on the Day of Remembrance, Wonderopolis' Wonder of the Day #137, What Is a Random Act of Kindness?, may be a starting point for children and adolescents to understand that a world without kindness is a place without harmony and peace.

Two years ago I created a digital inspiration based on a piece of ephemera from the past.

Today, I updated the above postcard-like digital with a call to action. The new digital inspiration and my longer post can be found at my blog site, Beyond LiteracyLink. You can access both here.
