From the Tributes and Stories of Ada that have been lovingly submitted by her family and friends, we have come to define these terms as follows (though encourage you to define as fits you!):
Kindness: To give an unexpected gift of a smile, a wave, a hug, a note of appreciation or love, or a treasure that is just-so-suited to the receiver. Recognize and engage with someone who is feeling alone or left-out.
Compassion: To be with, to listen to and to share-in another’s sorrow, without judgement or unwanted advice.
Courage: To stretch beyond your comfort-zone to explore ideas and adventures that will make you a better person.
