"They may forget what you said but they will never forget how you made them feel."
A teacher was teaching her class about bullying and gave them the following exercise to perform. She had the children take a piece of paper and told them to crumple it up, stomp on it, and really mess it up, but be careful not to rip it. Then she had them unfold the paper, smooth it out and look at how scarred and dirty it was. She then told them to tell it they’re sorry. Now even though they said they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out the scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it. That is what happens when a child bully’s another child, they may say they’re sorry but the scars are there forever. The looks on the faces of the children in the classroom told her the message hit home.
“There is no gesture more devastating than the back turning away.”

Teaching kids to count is fine, but teaching them what counts is best.
“Often the right path is the one that may be hardest for you to follow. But the hard path is also the one that will make you grow as a human being.”
