Kick-off to Kindness (Week of February 14-21)

To officially start our Kindess Week here in Ottawa, I would like to share a video from Sochi Olympics 2014.

In this video, Canadian speed skater Gilmore Junio relinquishes his spot in the men’s 1,000m race, allowing his teammate Denny Morrison to compete in his place. Morrison went on to win Silver for Canada. In return, Morrison is now pushing to have Junio be the Canadian representative to hold the Canadian flag at the closing ceremonies. “Paying It Forward” with random acts of kindness, certainly pays off in the end!

The caliber of a true athlete has been raised. It is not only your skill, but your compassion for others and respect for your teammates. In my opinion, this is what makes a great athlete. This is what makes a great Canadian.

Let’s continue to choose to be kind. Paying it forward with random acts of kindness.

Always remember, KINDNESS IS CONTAGIOUS!!! :)
