This short video was about the ‘ripple effect’ of small acts of kindness. You got to see at the start a construction worker helping a boy who fell off his skate board. This inspired the boy to help an elder woman carry her groceries bags across the street and then that elder lady gave a younger lady some change for the parking meter and so on. It shows that little acts of kindness can go a long way and inspire people to pay it forward.
I saw this video in grade 8 with my old school and I thought it was a good thing to show. I try to be positive and try not to be mean to others and I am constantly trying to help others out when they need it. This video showed me how being kind to others can be inspiring to the receiver to carry on the deeds. For example, I go out of my way to help my friends with the notes they have missed when they weren’t in class, also I help them understand work to the best of my ability when they don’t understand it.
There are many people who are self centered and only like to make sure they are doing well and their family is doing well. The thought of helping others, doesn’t generally come to their minds first, but I think this video shows that helping others results in a sense of pride in what you have done. Once they start helping people and feel the sense of accomplishment that comes from what they have done, they will be more willing to do it proactively in the future. The video is a positive reminder of what the outcome of helping other people can be – sense of satisfaction.
