–Acts of Kindness: Raised by a video summarized by the phrase “a simple act of kindness creates an endless wave.” Young people discussed the importance of good deeds that, even though they may be small, mark people’s lives and create an infinite cycle of kindness that, who knows, may come back to you.
–Kindness: Raised by a video summarized by the phrase “rich is the one who gives the most.” Young people argued about the value of money, a material resource, without genuine inner happiness, which is received by helping others.
