"3 Bits" of Kindness.

Extracts from this document...


Curtis Braught WR121 "3 Bits" of Kindness "I need a cell phone." I said looking around for someone to hear me. My two backpacks were getting heavy. I slipped my school backpack onto the ground, undid the endless number of straps and buckles on my overnight backpack, and squirmed out of its tight hold on my back. "Here you go." My friend handed me her cell phone. I flipped it open to call my mom. "Where are you?" I asked. This was the first time I had left the country without one of my parents and neither of them was at the airport to pick me up. My mom made a typical comment of having to pick up one of my many brothers. She told me how long she would be until she'd be. I handed the phone back graciously to my friend.

Upstairs, around the corner, and through a door was a room with two plush seats. To the right of the plush seats was a couch. The couch followed the wall around the corner to a wall with a door.

My two younger brothers, age of nine and ten, were completely wrapped up in the idea of serving themselves and no one else. Most Americans strive for the American Dream for, whether they know it or not. This dream is now the idea of owning many material possessions all to satisfy and serve you. I think back on Jitka's happy face asking each person if they wanted some of her candy bar. The glow she had from doing something good looked better to me now than who won the argument about the chicken legs. From this experience I have noticed that I try to be more generous. If I had the chance, I would love to have every American experience the joy that comes from doing something good for someone else.
