WORLD KINDNESS DAY


In honor of today, World Kindness Day, students listened to the following words of wisdom:

Today, November 13, is known as World Kindness Day. 

Albert Einstein, one of our countries great geniuses once said:

Our task must be to widen our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.

In other words, he is saying that one of our jobs in life is to be kind and caring to each other, to all living creatures and to planet Earth.

As you move through the day today, notice that although we human creatures come in different colors, shapes, and sizes, we share a common bond with each other.  We live on the same earth and under the same stars, and we all want to be treated with kindness.  Today, focus on what we have in common while celebrating the differences that make our country unique. 

Crayola has set up a website of activities to go along with the notion of this important day.  Activities can be accessed by visiting this link.
