Month of Kindness?

The Univeristy of Minnesota is proud to proclaim Nov. 10th - Dec. 10th the annual Month of Kindness. Which raises the question how are members supposed to treat each other the rest of the year?

According to the official Month of Kindness website (at www.monthofkindness.com):

Kindness—it’s a simple concept, really, but one we too often take for granted. The Month of Kindness is a University-wide event dedicated to spreading kindness throughout the community. The Month of Kindness will promote involvement in the University community by promoting events from a wide range of student and community organizations. These events will allow us to reach out to others and improve our relationships with them. The Month of Kindness also hopes to raise awareness of the simple ways in which we can all show kindness to others every day, thus making their lives—and ours—a little better.

A striking testament to the human hunger for virtue, even when such language has been banished from the academy.
