Assets In Action: Simple tasks to make life easier

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

This week, I will give a nod to Editor Rory McClannahan of the Mountain View Telegraph. He wrote an, “Uninvited graduation speech” and I thought it would be fun to do the same.
The members of the class of 2014 were the incoming seventh graders when we began the Change of Heart program.
Back in the day, we trained the entire Hawk team all at the same time. My husband still blames me for the flu that went around during that time, since we did so much sitting on the floor.
So in my wisdom, what would I have to say to our future leaders?
Be kind. It really is one of the easiest things you can do and doesn’t cost a thing.
Next, I would say love whoever you want. Don’t let the rules of others tell you what your heart should do. If you have good communication and thick skin, don’t let race, religion, sex or geography keep you apart.
Life is not easy and once you understand that, than everything else isn’t such a big deal.
Stand your ground and sometimes you have to keep your mouth closed until you can to do it. Bullies continue to exist, sometimes they are stealth, but if you are doing the right thing, confide in a friend and hang in there.
