The world would be a much better place if people were more considerate of their fellow man. For example, holding doors open for others in public places is a gesture of kindness that makes almost everyone feel good. Smiling and saying hello to strangers while walking down the street also does a lot to put others at ease. Finally, helping neighbors and friends who are experiencing hard times by bringing them meals or mowing their lawn are small gestures that are always appreciated.
