The Kindest Gesture Ever

One day, as I was sitting on the monkey bars at the playground when I was about seven, I saw a kid a few years younger than me playing with their dog. As I watched, the child accidently let go of the puppy’s leash, and the dog started to run towards the road. Wasting no time, I jumped off of the monkey bars and raced to go help. As I ran, a button fell off of my shirt, but I didn’t stop to grab it; I was on a mission. I managed to catch up to the dog and caught his leash. The kid thanked me as much as possible, and helped me find my lost button. The dog actually helped me find it, and perhaps it wasn’t the grandest gesture of kindness possible, but it was still kind, all the same.
