PEACE

Play fair...
Elicit kindness...
Always be respectful...
Celebrate differences...
Embrace each other...

  1. There was a small episode today at school, some online stuff, some against others! I wish there was more of what is in your poem in young teens! Well said!

    1. Ugh, Linda! I hate to hear that. Kids can be so mean sometimes - especially behind a keyboard. Hopefully these kids will find their peace. =)

    1. Thank you, Robyn! Some of the simplest words are the hardest to put into action. But we continue to try. =)

    1. Good idea, Mary Lee! Love that HOPE was there...I wonder if those things are random?

  7. Sorry to be a week late to this post (alas, it hasn't been a very peaceful week), but your poem is, indeed, spot on... especially from a kid's viewpoint! I especially love the opening line, "Play fair."
