The unsolicited kindness of strangers is awesome!
I'm in the campus building near my apartment, and this stranger comes up and asks me if I want a piece of pizza. I blink twice, then say, "Yes, yes I do." She leaves and comes back with pizza. I'm sitting with my back to the common area between the dorms, and there's some kind of student activities thing happening out there, with free food. I hadn't noticed. But this stranger thought to ask if I'd like some.
Sometimes that's enough to restore your faith in humanity. The kindness, not the free pizza. Free pizza doesn't hurt, though.
