We hope that everyone is having a wonderful summer! This week, we want to share a story about a woman that has been on a road trip documenting acts of kindness! On June 24, The Washington Post published an article documenting Mary Latham’s three-year journey to find people performing acts of kindness. The following are some excerpts from this article.
“After Mary’s mom passed away in 2013, she spent several years feeling adrift and it took her some time to find the right way to honor her mom’s legacy. Her mom said to Mary on several occasions ‘there are always going to be tragedies in the world, but there will always be more good – you just have to look for it.’ To honor her mom’s legacy of looking for goodness, she came up with a plan. She would pack a suitcase with several changes of clothes and hit the road in her mom’s blue Subaru Outback to drive cross-country in search of simple acts of kindness. Mary decided to call her road trip ‘More Good.’ On October 29, 2016, Mary set out from her family’s home on Long Island, taking dozens of ‘More Good’ shirts to hand out to people who followed her journey and agreed to host her for two or three nights. Mary has been documenting all her stops on a website, with the goal of publishing a book to donate to hospital waiting rooms. Almost three years later, Mary is still at it, with only seven more states to go on her journey.”
This article outlines some wonderful stories of kindness. While Mary is honoring her mom’s legacy, she is also following “God’s Way – The Road to Kindness!” God Bless all of you for your acts of kindness in our church and community.
