Let's take the time to be kind

To the editor:

Many of us remember that February is Random Acts of Kindness Month. This is a time when we make special efforts to be nice to other people.

This may be as simple as smiling at the person ahead of you in the checkout line, or more extensive, such as writing letters to special people in your life.

In addition, this is the beginning of Lent, a time when many Christians choose to give up something, such as chocolate. I am suggesting that the Christians among us combine the two and pledge to do specific acts of kindness throughout Lent.
