Kindness Will Save the World

Stories of Compassion and Connection

Written By: James Crews, Dinara Mirtalipova
From the editor of the best-selling poetry anthology How to Love the World, the upbeat and hopeful writings in Kindness Will Save the World are a breath of fresh air that highlight what’s good in the world and how to create more of it.

Award-winning writer James Crews shows how moments of connection can be found in even the most ordinary of encounters. His writing is intimate and personal, as he reflects on his daily life living in the Vermont countryside with his husband, while also relatable when exploring shared human experiences. Kindness Will Save the World inspires reflection on one’s own life, how to find the positive in little moments, and how to radiate kindness to those around you.

Spanning only a few pages’ length each, the 100 unique stories can be read in minutes, whenever you need a quick dose of positivity. Read an uplifting piece each morning or night to gain optimism and inspiration for the new day ahead.

With journaling prompts throughout and highlighted Kindness Practices, James gives you the tools to integrate the life-changing practice of kindness into your own life, and shows that kindness doesn’t need to be difficult or time-consuming — it can be found in the smallest moments.
