School is back in session, and while I'm so grateful I don't have to go, I can't help but think about what it must be like for kids these days. Not to get too deep, but you hear about bullying (in person and on social media), and all I can say is thank goodness we didn't have social media when I was in school. I can only imagine the hurt that can be caused by the overexposed lifestyle / highlight reel that is instagram.
Let's be kind to one another and encourage the young ones around us to do the same. Encourage them to speak to the kids they see as "weird" or "not cool" or "nerds" or whatever hurtful title kids use (and we also used when we were younger) to single out the people we were different from. Let's encourage them to be inclusive because if we've learned anything as we've gotten older it's that it's cool to be kind. Kindness goes much farther than rudeness.
