HOW AMAZING ARE OUR CHILDREN?

“When we saw all the violence on TV and internet, like the shootings, we asked (our teacher) how we could change whats going on in the world,” student Justus Dockstadar said in an email. “She said we could always try to change by showing kindness and it could be big or small. So we began to develop the Kindness Project.”
To show other classes just how serious they are about being kind, the class chose to give up their Valentine’s Day party and instead donate it to Wichita’s Littlest Heroes, an organization who helps kids with life-threatening medical conditions. The class hopes to donate 250 Valentine’s Day boxes for all the little heroes.
