Link – The power of kindness

“I have learned,” she writes, “that when you teach kindness and compassion to students and they really understand the concept, everything else falls into place. This should be the first lesson of every teacher.”

Looking at other people with kindness prevents the kind of dehumanization that I’ve written about before. It’s when we see other people as being “less than” that we see all sorts of abusive, anti-social, and sometimes violent behavior. In general, we don’t treat other people that way when we are looking out for their best interests.
