When Teens Are Asked to do Something Kind, They Write 5,100 Notes to Uplift Every Student in School

When the students at Carmel Clay High School were asked to do something kind for their fellow classmates, they did not just rise to the occasion; they owned it.
Sarah Wolff, who teaches a ceramics class at the school in Carmel, Indiana, asked a group of her pupils to do something nice for their fellow students. She figured that – following the tragic events at the school in Parkland, Florida last week – her students could benefit from even a trickle of positive vibes.
The teens then agreed to write and print out inspiring notes for their peers—not just the ones they were friends with, but a note for every student in the school.
As a result, the youngsters wrote 5,100 individual notes of inspiration and taped them to the school lockers on Wednesday.

I’m no goody two shoes but I’d like to hope this is more effective than any “gun prohibition”.
Clearly, the Parkland Florida was a disturbed individual, but perhaps, just if just one person had taped such a note to his locker, things might have been different.
Maybe if we all listen and reach out a little more, we can be that change?
