Free in White Plaza: Random Acts of Kindness

Posted by at 5:09PM

A group of students part of something called “Project Love” attempted to inspire some impromptu “unofficial blogging” of sorts in White Plaza today, offering free chalk for people to write anything they wanted on the ground.
There’s no such thing as free lunch, but there is such a thing as free chalk at lunchtime.
When hesitant passersby approached Robin Thomas, holder of the Free Chalk sign, they almost always asked the question, “What is this for?” The response to which was, “For fun” or “just because.” Other acceptable answers, it seems, just as they are for blogging here on TUSB, were: “express yourself,” “free speech,” “get a chance to write,” “share your thoughts,” and “here’s a blank canvas–do what you want.”
