YOUR VIEW: Kindness in the community at post office

To the Editor:

I witnessed two separate random acts of kindness at the New Britain Post Office.

One day recently, the line was long and a young lady in the queue wanted to buy just one stamp. She asked the other customers waiting, but no one had stamps on them, so she stayed in the line.

Another lady in front of us purchased stamps and gave one to the young lady. The young lady tried to pay, but the other lady said no and Happy Holidays.

On 12/10/21, I was at the post office again and a man with a huge box got in line behind me. A postal worker asked the man if he had a mask, but he didn’t and was going to leave.

The lady in front of me handed him a mask in a plastic sleeve. She said she always carries extras.

It warms my heart to see goodwill and to know there are still kind people in the world. I’ll be on the lookout for more acts of kindness and I hope the world will join me.
