Today the Orange County Sheriff’s Department posted a message and video on social media, we’d like to share it with you:

It’s #worldkindnessday. Today, (and everyday) we encourage you to extend kindness to someone – send an uplifting text, write a note expressing gratitude, hold the door for a stranger.

We’d love to hear what you are doing for others, or what someone has done for you!

According to OC Human Relations, 67 hate crimes were reported in 2018, up 12% from 2017. The most common targeted groups were Jewish, Muslim, Latino, LGBTQ+ and African American communities. We believe in treating all the communities we serve with respect & kindness every day. #WorldKindnessDay

A little bit of kindness goes a long way. 💚 #ServiceAboveSelf
Support each other, respect each other, and be kind to each other because in Orange County, there is 

Thank you Orange County Sheriff’s Department, in these times of increasing divisiveness and intolerance, it’s heartening to see a message of inclusion and respect such as this.
