According to the Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) Foundation it's RAK Week - February 11 - 17. Get your kindness on...and try to keep it there.
This semester I'm co-teaching a philosophy course - Altruism and the Good Life - with the campus philosophy rockstars - Heather Keith, Steve Fesmire, and Bill Throop. So far it has been a wonderful experience. We're atttempting to get people to think critically about their lifestyle, priorties, and ethical values. Last week we read and discussed virtue ethic theories in which Steve reminded us to "be the change we wish to see in the world" (Gandhi). RAK Week is a great way to start being the change.
