Kill Them With Kindness

Here’s a sweet peacemaking story: A Republican sent a nasty tweet to an actor-comedian who had posted comments critical of President Trump. You’d expect the comedian to retort in kind, and for the downward spiral to continue, right? Especially because these men don’t know one another. But the comedian, Patton Oswalt, did the unexpected. Apparently he decided to research his opponent before replying, and discovered that the Republican, a man named Michael Beatty, had just gotten out of the hospital after being in a coma from his diabetes, and needed help with his medical bills. So Mr. Oswalt, instead of making a sassy reply, invited his followers to contribute to Mr. Beatty’s GoFundMe page — as Mr. Oswalt himself had just done.

A beautiful example of turning the other cheek and going the extra mile.
