“The Kindness Generation”

January 20th, 2011

1-20-11Traveling the country in my 1990 Kindness Bus, I am able to see firsthand, the greater good that kids as young as 4 years of age are accomplishing. Kids that believe in helping others, are learning important lessons while doing so, one of the most important lessons: they learn to believe in themselves.
“Believe to Achieve” was the name of the play I saw two nights ago, its lesson was, how believing in oneself can lead to an individual rising to the best of their ability. Doing and even hearing enough times in one’s life, that you have the power to make a difference in the world, can cause you to believe in yourself.
I love referring to the students I speak with as being part of a something big, part of a growing movement called “The Kindness Generation.” I believe kids need to hear this all the time to remind them that they are part of something very important. Hearing something enough gives one the belief in what they are told; kids need to believe that they are part of “The Kindness Generation.”
