RESOLUTION

Remembering kindness in the United States and affirming our commitment to fostering community and building resiliency through every day acts of kindness.

Whereas kindness means doing something for someone else with no expectation of anything in return;

Whereas kindness can change a family, a neighborhood, a school, a city, a nation, and ultimately, our world;

Whereas residents within the United States have a long history of demonstrating kindness daily in their homes, schools, places of faith, businesses, community organizations, and throughout their neighborhoods;

Whereas kindness has the power to connect people and to build community and is the mortar that connects and builds the social infrastructure of the United States;

Whereas the culture of kindness and compassion can heal our country from within and promote a healthier society;

Whereas studies have shown that kindness can improve several aspects of health, mindfulness, self-compassion, compassion toward others, and interpersonal conflict; and

Whereas kindness can foster strong bonds that will bring individuals together despite their differences in order to tackle the challenges that face the United States in a nonpartisan manner: Now, therefore, be it

That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that the United States shall recognize kind actions in our country, encourage kindness, spread love, and foster a culture of being kind to one another.
