I have often asked myself, as well as others have questioned “Why?”. Why should we teach values, kindness, respect, acceptance, caring for others, responsibility, how to resolve problems & conflicts without hurting others, & teamwork? The answer is because it matters. Kindness matters. Respect matters. Caring for others matters. Values matter. They all matter. It really comes down to the Golden Rule. Treat others like you would like to be treated. It is simple, but it is not always easy.
Following the tragic events on September 11, 2001, I gave away hundreds of green ribbons printed with the words, because kindness matters. I passed them out on Make a Difference Day, October 25, 2001, and even for Halloween that year. The kids were so excited to get ribbons, they did not even care about the candy! Why? The answer is still the same. Because kindness matters.
