Editorial: It’s time to do something nice for a neighbor

Have you ever had a neighbor who went out of his or her way to do something to make your day easier or that put a smile on your face?

While this is something that can happen year round, there is actually a day set aside each year that encourages people to do something good for their neighbor. This year, that day is on Thursday.

A neighbor can be defined in many ways, whether it’s a person who lives near you or simply another person who crosses your path in the community.

Do Something Good For Your Neighbor Day reminds us that we are all neighbors, and we should treat each other with love and respect.

Whether it’s mowing someone’s lawn, giving them a plate of cookies, holding open a door or simply saying hello with a smile, there are many things we can do to display kindness.

Try it out. You just might find it brings a little kindness into your own day in return
