Examples of unkind in a Sentence

  1. Deborah Moore:

    Dad taught me to always be appreciative of what you have, in fact, he would never say no to anyone who asked for an autograph. Even if it was at the most inconvenient moment, he ’d be so gracious and say yes. I remember he once said, ‘ These are the people who put me here ’ and that’s why he did it. He also taught me that it’s so easy to be kind and so hard to be unkind, because he always had so much love and respect for other people. He was such a good man.
