Leadership. It’s so powerful but it can be so simple. Josh’s story is proof that it can also be catching. In his case, it was also the answer to overcoming the long tail of pain that bullying causes.
If you have children, I encourage you to show them Josh’s story. My favorite part is hearing his fellow students’ reactions. Although kids hear and see so much “mean,” they gravitate to “kind.” Kind can be very cool.
Kids are also the best teachers. I’ll be interested in hearing what you think of Josh’s way of stepping up after he was stepped on.
