It has come to my attention lately that there is a wonderful spirit trending among some of our teens. More and more teens are deliberately making attempts to be especially nice to their peers in an effort to make a statement against bullying. Consider the following lovely and recent story: A 16 year old teenage girl from Massachusetts named Ashley Monroe wrote “You’re beautiful” on 1,986 sticky notes and posted one on each of the lockers in her school. Ashley is a sophomore at Monty Tech. which is a vocational school in Massachusetts.
Well, I guess there was a wonderful outcome of her behavior. A few days after Ashley posted these sticky notes one of her peers told her that that sticky note gave her hope at a time when she was feeling completely hopeless.
Right on, Ashley and good for you!
