Being Good for Each Other

It has been a very busy couple of weeks and lots has happened, both here on campus and around the world, that has made many of us ask questions like, “where is the good in the world?”  

Whether in an assembly, at a Rainbow Club meeting or in America, many people (no matter which side of the debate they happen to be on) have been forced to question themselves, people the respect, and possibly even an entire country.  It’s not been easy.  

No matter whether you agree or not with the Rainbow Club, Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, or off-color remarks in an assembly, there are people on the other side of the conversation.  Some of these people might be your friends and family, perhaps not.  In either case, they are people.  Kid President is a person too 🙂  Back in September he shared another of his many inspiring videos, this one was about How to Disagree with People.  I’m going to let you watch this one, it’s worth it!  

So we’ve disagreed, and that’s okay.  Everyone is different and that is a good thing.  One thing we can all focus on, no matter which side of the aisle we sit on during these disagreements, is how we make the world a better place.  No one is expected to change the entire world, but we can all have a positive impact in our small little corner of the world.  Since he’s on a roll (of more than four years now) let’s defer to Kid President one more time for a lesson on How Good Spreads.  

Be good for our kids, be good for each other, and be good for yourself!
