This is a day of JOY and WONDER, and no matter what your beliefs, I wanted to share a book about universal goodness. Several weeks ago some teachers were talking about a book for middle school students called WONDER by R. J. Palacio. They were raving about the book and said it was a “must read.” Once I started reading it I couldn’t stop! It’s one of those books that get in your heart and you’ll never forget it!!! I don’t want to say any more, but I wanted to share a few quotes about kindness that the principal shared in the graduation address.
“Such a simple thing, kindness. Such a simple thing. A nice word of encouragement given when needed. An act of friendship. A passing smile… If every single person in this room made it a rule that wherever you are, whenever you can, you will try to act a little kinder than is necessary – the world really would be a better place. And if you do this, if you act just a little kinder than is necessary, someone else, somewhere, someday, may recognize in you, in every single one of you, the face of God.”

I hope your day is filled with WONDER!

Thanks for making this world a better place with your kindness to children every day!
