16 Year Old Ashley Makes Everyone In Her School Feel Beautiful For A Day

 Imagine if when you got to school today, there was a sticky note on your locker that read:

"You're beautiful."

And not just on your locker.  On every locker in the row.  Every locker down the hall.  Every locker in the whole school!

Well, Ashley did that at her school. 

 Her story of what happened is a great reminder that each one of us can make a difference.  And that sometimes the powers that be don't get it... but good can triumph anyway.  And sometimes, good and kind wins in ways you don't even realize.


My thanks to Karol for sharing this with me, so I could share it with all of you.

That's a beautiful story. What was disheartening was that the administration's first response was to conduct an investigation, complete with video surveillance, and then consider a 3-day suspension. (Fortunately, several hundred petition signers helped bring them to their senses.) I hope they are as aggressive in responding to anonymous hate speech as they were in responding to anonymous love speech.
