It’s never too late to pursue your goals

Better late than never. In the case of John Babcock, this adage certainly holds true. Due to the death of a loved-one, a world war as well as the demands of work and family, John had to wait 75 years to achieve one of his goals.

Random Acts of Kindness Week runs from Feb. 10 -16. The goal of the event is to “inspire people to practise kindness and pass it on to others.” In other words, RAK Week is about being kind for the sake of being kind.
