While riding in the car with 3 boys, ages 9, 7 and 5, I caught part of what the oldest boy, Allen, was telling the other two. When I asked him to repeat his story, he said:
“In recess today I went to sit in the shade because the sun was so hot. I saw one boy lying down on the concrete with another boy bullying, scratching and being mean to him. I stood up, walked over to the bully and said, ‘Will you please stop?’ He said, “No”. After running to tell the teacher, I helped the boy on the ground stand up and walked with him to the nurse.”
Me: “What grade were the boys in?” Third.
Me: “Did you know them?” No.
Me: “I am so proud of you, Allen; what you did was wonderful!”
He didn’t seem to think it was any big deal. But the longer I thought about it the more I realized just how brave, kind and loving he was to both boys. He not only showed kindness to the boy on the ground, but he was polite to the boy who was hurting another child. I know that sounds weird to say but maybe what that boy needed the most was to see that there are kids who come from a place of love, will stand up for other kids and beating up on someone is not acceptable.
Something else I realized was that Allen demonstrated high character and leadership qualities in doing what was right, what was humane and what other students might not have acted upon. (Seriously, I could take some lessons from this child!)
Sharing our love with each other and with the world is making a huge impact on our children, grandchildren and those around us. You know you are following Divine Guidance anytime you come from a place of love. If you have a story about a child showing love and kindness to another, will you please share it below?
What the world needs now is love, sweet love…
