Kevin's Pay it Forward

Sunday, January 4, 2009
On the last day of school, we watched a video called Pay It Forward, and we had to do our own act of kindness for someone we know, or a stranger. I decided to help my Grandma, by shoveling her sidewalk and front yard for her. The sidewalk was filled with a lot of snow, and I should've did this earlier, but I came on the day before school starts. When we got there it was already dark, because it's Winter and we came at 5PM. I started shoveling the sidewalk first, because it was hard to walk through with snow nearly up to your ankles, then I helped a bit with the front yard, but it was almost all clear already because she had cleaned some of it herself.

After I shoveled the sidewalk and front yard, I went inside. She thanked me and I asked if she could try to do a kindness for another person, and I told her about the Pay It Forward project. She told me she will try to do an act of kindness for someone she knows and tell that person to do one for another, and so on. After that, I felt glad that she did not have to shovel all of that
snow herself.

I believe that one person, can make a difference in the world. All they have to do is do an act of kindness, and pass it on, and keep going. It starts to affect more, and more people in a good way, it's still making a difference. As long as the acts of kindness keep passing on, it will soon make a big, big difference in the world. That's how I see it.
