An act of random kindness


By Brandy DeVous

In this world there will always be some horrible events, and with each horrible event comes unbelievable generosity, some are just random acts of kindness.

Annie Ames, a second-year 4-H member, heard about the Prague girls from her mother. The two girls had unfortunately lost both parents in a matter of two days. Annie, hearing their story, decided to give $500 from her Canadian County Premium Livestock Bonus Sale check to the two girls.

“It felt like the right thing to do,” Annie said. “The girls needed the money more than I did.”

With Annie only beginning in the 4-H program, I asked if she planned on doing anything like this is in the future.

“Yes,” she said. “It made me feel good knowing I helped out someone in a hard time.” For every horrible event there is an act of unbelievable generosity. This time it was a young girl who decided to give out a random act of kindness.
