Random Act Of Kindness

Every time I see and hear in the news about criminals are committed every day and became the reason for a lot of people to be falling dead or getting seriously injured for the rest of their lives, I think to myself that the world is going crazy. It is changing to be a cruel, wild, and scary place to live in. I feel so scary that the kindness and mercy in the world is no longer exists in people. That’s why I believe that kindness is super important, and we all should keep reminding ourselves of that and always keep that in mind. Personally, I’m really inspired by that saying in the bible that that to be wise as devils and harmless as doves. I’m trying my best every day to apply the saying.

            Almost two years ago, I started working in Wendy’s restaurant which is in the airport, and I was new to the co-worker’s team in the kitchen. I was very nice to all of my teammates and as well they were to me except one lady who has been working there for about 7 years. She was hardly smiling or speaking to me. Although, I didn’t do anything bad to her, she kept dealing me so tough. And sometime, she was rude to me whenever I do any mistake and she was always talking bad about me to the managers and other coworkers. To be honest I was so bothered by her reaction to me especially that I don’t see any reason or excuse for her to do that only to me.

            One day, she came and walk into the kitchen and she looked extremely tired and depressed to the point that made me feel sad to her and approaches her to see what was going on with her. First, I looked at the office and made sure that none of the managers was there. Then, I went ahead, brought her a cup of her favorite drink, and asked her to go have a seat or even take a nap if she would like to and relax and not to be worried I would do all of the work instead of her till any of the mangers appeared. She refused at first and I saw in her eyes that she thought that I was doing that to take revenge of all the bad things she has done to me and that I would tell the managers about her not working all the day. But I tried very gently and kindly to reassure her that I would never do anything bad or harmless for her and I really feel so bad for her and all what I wanted was to see her fine and happy. Finally, she relaxed, and I didn’t let her to work or do anything in the kitchen the hole day.

            At the end of the day, she thanked me so much for all what I had done that day for her, and even offered me a ride to home since I wasn’t driving these days and was waiting for my father or brother to pick me up. I tried to tell her that she didn’t have to do that and I’m fine, but I was surprised that she insisted to drive me home. In her car and on our way to my home, I began to ask about her and what happened in her life to be that sad. She told me that her only daughter has a cancer in her lungs for about a year then and the previous day she went with her to take one of her chemotherapy sessions, and that every time she see her daughter has a session, she became very sad and depressed for her, and then she began to tear up and cry. I tried to calm her down and give her hope by telling her to be strong and faithful. God won’t let anything bad to happen to her daughter and that I believe her daughter would conquer that disease and get rid of it forever, God willing. I was very glad that I saw in her eyes that she became better and relaxed a bit when she listened to my talk and felt the kindness and love in me for her and her daughter. Now that I no longer work in that restaurant for almost, we still get in touch and call each other every now and then and I’m very happy that we became friends to this day. 

In conclusion, I believe that we all should always trying to be kind and nice to people as much as we can, and always reach out to offer help to each other and never hold our hands from helping out as long as we have the ability to do and make a difference people’s lives even if these people are our enemies and keep hurting and doing bad things to us. I strongly believe that We don’t know everything about all of us; everyone has problems that he or she thinks that they are bigger than anyone’s. We are all sharing the same land and air, and we are going to a future we know nothing about but love ourselves and the others. The only thing we can do is to be nice to each other and treat everyone as we would like to be treated.

The Great Debate: The Marriage Between Two Genders Alike

Same-sex marriage can be defined as the practice of marriage of two individuals in which they are the same gender. Ever since April 2, 2019, same-sex marriage has been legal and passed by U.S. Congress. The concept promotes equality between everyone through an emotional state of love. The U.S. Supreme Court declared that the states cannot prohibit same-sex marriage and demand that all states permit marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Although same-sex marriage is already implemented into society, many have had different opinions ranging from commemorative to discrimination.

The law and legislation of the U.S. defend same-sex marriage. As the fourteenth amendment states, “The Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment prohibits states from denying any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the law. In other words, the laws of a state must treat an individual in the same manner as other people in similar conditions and circumstances.”(public.getlegal.com). This amendment also applies to the LGBT community, which means, the marriage between the same gender. The LGBT community are entitled to as much equality as any other individual. If any of the states were to forbid the marriage between two individuals of the same sex, they are technically breaking the law.

Freedom of choice declares, “Right to exercise one’s freedoms in any manner one may choose except where such act may obstruct or prevent others from exercising their freedoms, put oneself or others in danger, or exceeds a statutory limit.” (businessdictionary.com). Therefore, individuals who are part of the LGBT community have the freedom of choice to marry whoever they want, even if it is the same gender. As E.J Graff declares, “that decision, the Court declared that lesbians and gay men mustn’t be forced, alone, to suffer the old stigma against non-reproductive sex: all people have a right to privacy, a right to choose for ourselves how to use our bodies, a right to decide with whom to celebrate intimacy and love and pleasure.” (Graff). According to regulations, certain laws permit the process of same-sex marriage such as the fourteenth amendment and the freedom of choice for everyone.

Marriage between two individuals of the same gender can go against the norms and regulations of society. There lies a distinction between same-sex marriage and standard marriages, what the parents can offer to their children. Children both need a mother and a father, thus, a father cannot provide what a mother can offer and vice versa. A mother provides emotional support and nurture for her child, “Children without a mother are deprived of the emotional security and unique advice that mothers provide.” (Procon.org). In a same-sex marriage, how can the child grow up “properly”? Even though same-sex marriage has been passed through the law, many have opposed it. Children of same-sex couples can suffer from discrimination from peers because of their parent’s orientation. Many children of same-sex couples have been victims of bullying, “The study found children from same-sex parents suffer emotional issues because they are being raised by at most one biological parent. Other factors, like bullying and financial instability, didn’t impact how the children felt emotionally, the study said.” (Scribner). Another argument against same-sex marriage is that it is immoral and goes against various religions. Religion’s do not consider same-sex marriage as holy and traditional in that there are two individuals of the same gender. As John Paul II argued, “There are absolutely no grounds for considering homosexual unions to be in any way similar or even remotely analogous to God’s plan for marriage and family… Marriage is holy, while homosexual acts go against the natural moral law.” (Procon.org). Society may perceive same-sex marriage as going against nature’s laws and is sinful according to numerous religions.

Marriage should not be offered to same-sex couples because the purpose of marriage is to reproduce, is one of the arguments that is not based on religion. If two individuals of the same-gender were to marry, they would never be able to have biological children, “the State regulates marriage for the primary purpose of channeling potentially procreative sexual relationships into enduring unions for the sake of joining children to both their mother and their father… Same-sex couples can never provide a child with both her biological mother and her biological father.” (Procon.org). A child also needs both a biological mother and biological father. Same gender marriages are not able to reproduce compared to opposite gender marriages, “Allowing gay marriage would only further shift the purpose of marriage from producing and raising children to adult gratification.” (procon.org). Even though some different-sex couples do not desire to have children of their own, they are still able to, unlike same-sex couples. In some ways, marriage is for procreation and same-sex couples do not have the potential to do so.

Ever since same-sex marriage was passed, many individuals who are part of the LGBT community has taken the advantage. When President Obama decided the LGBT community deserved the same rights as other individuals, he passed same-sex marriage. Same-sex marriage allowed gay individuals to exercise the freedom that they are entitled to and to express their love for their significant other through marriage. No one in society should be deprived of loving whoever they want and same-sex marriage permitted the relationship. Same-sex marriage allowed the LGBT community liberty, independence, and personal rights through the concept of marriage between two individuals.
