Spread the Hope
My visit to West Genesse High School in Camillus, NY was a beautiful experience. Exhausting! But beautiful.
I was brought in by the West Genesee Anti-Bullying Task Force and spoke to six groups of students during the schoolday, which may be my record for the most number of presentations in a day.
I've never been at a school where so many students told me how much they feel supported by the faculty at their school. Even students who said they were bullied knew there were faculty members they could speak with.
In the evening, I spoke in the auditorium to members of the community. And that definitely breaks my record for the most presentations in a day!
Now check out this organization founded by students at West Genesee H.S.: Stop the Hate, Spread the Hope. These students inspire me!
