Unbelievable, adults that don't want kids to be recognized for their kindness. Really? Do you really think kids don't realize there are varied degrees of kindness just as there are of ill? You really think this kind of "competition" will hurt them? There's not enough kids getting their 10 minutes of fame by doing something unlawful?
To take a line from Marty...GEEZE!
I think it is great to allow kids to be seen as the wonderful beings most of them are. Unfortunately, there is not enough "news" coverage of these acts of kindness or heroism. Do you think one of these kids that has been nominated might change the life of another person for the better because of their perceived kindness and that by their kindness being recognized by others, they may wish to continue into philanthropy as they grow into adulthood. Also, continuing on the same line, there are other kids that see the public recognition and may wish to choose a life of good for no other reason.
In my opinion, that sure beats the heck out of recognizing the lives of crime that are so often put out in the front of all of us.
Go Collette!!!! Thank you for what you do to change our world for the better!!
It's great to be .....
