Pay it Forward

Have you had a kindness shown?
Pass it on;
‘Twas not given for thee alone, Pass it on;
Let it travel down the years,
Let it wipe another’s tears,
‘Till in heaven the deed appears
Pass it on.
Dr Henry Burton, 1840 – 1930

This poem was written in my mother’s autograph book when she was a child, by a friends grandmother, and she passed it on to me. Just as we pass on bits of information, experience and inspiration, it is also important to pass on kindness.
