The Speech That Started It All...My National Kindness Speech
I have already seen how kindness can change a nation. Whether it is a wave to a stranger, saying a kind word to others or even offering to pay for someone's meal, every gesture can go a long way in helping to brighten someone else's day.
Join me in the "Race to Kindness," the best part is, "Everybody Wins!"-Orion Jean
