Act of Kindness from Krista

I am a high school English teacher in the small town of Douglas, Massachusetts. At the beginning of the school year I had asked students to write about their experiences during the Covid-19 pandemic. One student's response really blew me away, and when I heard about your Pandemic of Kindness initiative, I knew I had to submit this on her behalf.


Zophia is an 11th grader. Here is an excerpt from her response:

I have been playing violin since I was in third grade and knew immediately that I wanted to play a series of pieces and songs for the residents of my local nursing home to lift their spirits. I set up an outdoor concert area on the patio of the nursing home courtyard, where the staff opened the windows and gathered the residents, socially distanced, to watch and listen from inside. Although I could not be physically with them, it filled me with happiness to see the smiles on their faces as I played various classical pieces. It was truly fulfilling and an honor to be able to spread the gift of music to those who could use some company and joy during such a remote time.

Zophia's gesture was truly outstanding and beautiful and is a reminder during this time of the beauty and goodness that is still in this world.
