My review: A Splash of Kindness by John Starley Allen
I liked the stories and how little things and extra steps really made a difference in peoples lives.
I had heard some of the names but did not realize what their past was or the difference the people in their lives made. And what they did influences are lives today.
The one story that influences most of us is Philo T. Farnsworth the father of tv. He was one smart guy. He had also made the first infant incubator.
Also shows how just holding children and giving them love makes a big difference in showing how the children in orphanages in Romania thrive with love, color and time spent with them.
It also shows examples of teachers in students lives how they can make a big difference in there lives. Sometimes by teaching, extra attention or examples. Or those teachers who judged you on your past and would not let you change. Or talked down to students really had a negative effect too.
I really liked Stephen's story.
It really makes you think if you are going to positive to peoples lives or negative to others. I hope the first.
This is a positive story I was glad to have read it.
