I mostly avoid TV and media stuff (obviously aside from FB and blogging) because generally all we hear about are negative things. Someone was mean to someone else (again), someone committed suicide because they couldn't take the bullying, etc. It's hard for me, someone who is trying to be a positive person, to see and hear those things and not spin back into a depressive state. Moreso because I want to save everyone and know I can't.
Thus, on this terrific Tuesday, snuggled up in my house since we have the day off from school, I came across this posted in my newsfeed on FaceBook. These boys are my heroes.
Considering where I work and considering most of our students (even the age level I work with) can be so blasted MEAN....it was heartwarming to see these boys do something so amazing. Better yet, for them to realize, all on their own, that they learned a very important lesson.
Grab a tissue if you haven't seen this before. You might need it.
