“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who care don’t matter, and those who matter don’t care,” says Bernard Baruch. Parents and guardians teach children from birth to become good, honorable, humane, compassionate, self-sacrificing, selfless and just adults. Reality through life knows how to stumble, and growing up determined and combative, we face many adversities and problems by solving them the best we know how. The life path of human upbringing sometimes tramples on ideals, squints at ugly things, loses some virtues, shows some flaws and forgets the lessons from childhood and early youth. The Chinese say: “If you want happiness for an hour – go take a nap. If you want luck for one day – go fishing. If you want happiness for a year – inherit wealth. If you want happiness all your life – help someone else. “- a Chinese proverb teaches us. Adults are becoming less and less like a good child who is ready to help all known and unknown people. And the famous Robert Schumman once said, “Sending light to the depths of the human heart is the calling of the artist.” All people can therefore be artists and send light throughout their existence into the depths of human hearts. A new virus reigns in the world and a new era is beginning or has already begun. Goodness survived in spite of everything. We often hear news about the good deeds and humane gestures of famous celebrities from public life and their donations in the form of necessary medical equipment, money for the treatment of patients and donations for research and procurement of anti-virus drugs. Sometimes or very rarely do we hear the news of the noble deeds of ordinary people who are also changing the world. And they teach us what we should always be. Fortunately, there are more and more such “small and ordinary” people. “Success is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.” – said the great Winston Churchill. Enthusiasm drives people because if you look for happiness for other people you will find happiness for yourself. These nameless heroes of today are building a chain of solidarity and charity through small and good deeds. They restore a somewhat lost faith in a better future and a better world. To most people, kindness is the power of self-pity with other people or people in need. Understanding other people’s actions, needs, and perspectives. Good deeds create a sense of satisfaction, closeness and self-esteem. For goodness begets goodness.
