Character Quality of the Week: 

Kindness

EQ: Should kindness be based on what you can get in return?

Choices: A sick friend needs blood in order to get better. It is not a life-or-death situation, but it is needed. You are old enough to give blood, but you are deathly afraid of needles. Will you go ahead and give blood? What if your friend might die without it? What if you were asked to give one of your kidneys in order for your friend to live? What if it were for a total stranger, but you were one of the few people who were a match?
