    Comment
    What does this word, “kindness” really mean? What distinguishes kindness from compassion, thoughtlessness, altruism, cruelty?

“I want to expand my life and learn about other lives…what they have done, how they feel or what they regret. To me, it is the people around us that can change the way we see ourselves.” —Caitlin Frame '05 Skidmore College

“Life occurs because of connections and the crossing of paths. We come to see that what we do has countless effects…like a ripple in an infinite pond.” ” —Elfin Johansen, Harley '04 Ithaca College
“I played guitar for George and fed him. I also listened to his stories of his wife who he was married to for over 50 years. When I was in the room I felt happy and sad at the same time. They make me realize that life shouldn’t be taken for granted, that you should live your life and experience as many things as you can.” —Andy Rea, Harley '05

"He told us how much he appreciates our visits, and as we were about to leave, he began sobbing. We held his hand and assured him over and over that we would not forget him.” ” —Andrew Ragazzo, Harley '06

“At Kalighat, most of the dying spoke Bengali and we spoke only English. And yet, we could communicate easily through simple acts of kindness.” – Meaghan Malone, Harley '06 SUNY Binghamton
