*dedicated to Patrick Hutchinson
From kindergarten to the final stair, Kindness matters. From the Roman Empire to slave-trade corsair, Teach kindness. From the humble knee to raised fists in the air, Kindness matters. Compassion is not polarised by colour, skin and hair; Treat like kin. It's not a state of mind, But a choice to care. Kindness matters. So be like Patrick; shoulder with grace the burden to bear, and carry kindness with you Everywhere. Suzanne Fairless-Aitken
