For today’s prompt: Tell us about the time when you performed a secret random act of kindness — where the recipient of your kindness never found out about your good deed. How did the deed go down?

If we tell then it would not be a secret anymore, would it?  I don’t believe that we should broadcast our acts of kindness.  I feel it is more fulfilling to perform acts of kindness quietly, and even secretly if it is needed. There are times when we need to protect the dignity of others, and in helping them we have a chance to practice our own sense, and level of confidentiality.
Many of us have done good deeds.  Some have had good deeds done for them, and more often than not, those deeds have been done so secretly that not even the benefactor would know who did the deed for them.  There are times when we are moved to do something good for someone else without having any notion on the impact that random act will make on a life.  I have experienced having a good deed being done for myself, and for that I am grateful, and will never forget.
 “How far that little candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a weary world.”
William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice
