Foreword to “Random Acts of Kindness Are Changing the World”

Book by Rosalyn Kahn

I’ve always wanted the world to be a beautiful place, filled with gentle and giving souls. I was a teenager in the ’60s, awash in the haze and hope of harmony. I’m 60 now, and I still cling to the possibilities of peace and kindness throughout the world.

As I worked with the author, I had the honor of reading real stories of people who were trying to achieve these dreams—one random act of kindness at a time. They came in all shapes and sizes, ages, genders, ethnicities, backgrounds, and social statuses. By doing these random acts and sharing the stories, their lives—and the lives of others—were changed forever.

Through the passion of her words in this book, the importance of Rosalyn’s work is apparent. She is an “inner guide,” letting everyone know that they can change their world—and, by doing so, change the consciousness of the planet.

I believe that everyone can make a difference. I also believe that whatever I do in my small world affects everything and everyone else. Rosalyn’s stories remind me that my behavior always matters, and it doesn’t take a lot of time, money, or effort to do a random act of kindness and share it with the world.
