It all started with a small act of kindness
Eric Dahl’s latest random act of kindness received media attention over Remembrance Day for cleaning veteran’s graves in the local cemetery but it goes much farther and deeper than that.
Dahl said to The Mail, “It doesn’t matter, the media attention. It doesn’t make a difference to me, I would still be out there doing what I am doing. Nobody even caught on for a couple of weeks.
We all get so wrapped up in our own little worlds and we just don’t think outside the box or for others. It’s a shame when good deeds make the news because it should be like this all the time.” When my friend found a bag of homemade cookies someone in the community had sent, he just said, ‘Thank you. You have restored my faith in people.’”
The first time Dahl was given much attention for his random acts of kindness was the acts he committed as The Sticky Note Bandit which turned to handing out roses to strangers. Since then he has spread more kindness in the community and also brought honour to Veterans through his out of the box thinking.
Dahl said, “It really bothers me when people tell me that we need more people in the world like me. That really bugs me because, well, you’re like me, she’s like me, the lady sitting across from you is like me. Eric Dahl has received attention from all across Canada for his efforts to maintain veteran’s graves at the Drumheller cemetery in the week leading up to Remembrance Day, a care package was delivered to
from Vancouver to be passed onto Dahl.
