This week’s Random Act of Kid-ness comes to us all the way from Iraq, where 2 young boys posed for a picture with a sign that says “We Mourn with Boston.” The two boys understand what it is like to experience the aftermath of a terror attack and they sympathize with the pain Americans are going through after the Boston Marathon attacks earlier this week.  On the same day as the Boston tragedy alone, at least 33 people were killed and more than 160 were injured after bombings struck various Iraqi cities. Blogger Kevin Gosztola says:

 “We are all citizens of the world, and our pain can bring us together.”

We are inspired by the kindness of these 2 young boys, and our sympathy goes out to everyone affected by the tragedies in Boston and throughout the world this week and always.
