He is kind because when bilbo could have killed Gollum in the goblin tunnels when Gollum was trying to kill Bilbo, Bilbo had the chance to kill gollum, but he didn’t do it. Another reason why he is kind is because after Gollum, bilbo could have run back home to the Shire, but instead he came back to the dwarves and fought off the orcs with them. He was risking his life so they could get back their…

Although he does not succeed in this task what is truly important is that…
