You know, we hear so much about the crappy things our youth are getting into today, and not nearly enough about the good things.
Sh*tty behavior sells papers. But we knew that.
So while yes, there is some nasty stuff in this story, there's also some fabulous good.
I want to extend cookies galore to a couple of high school students at Central Kings Rural High School in Cambridge, Nova Scotia.
Recently, on the first day of school, a new 9th grade student was attacked by a group of older students, who mocked him for wearing a pink shirt, called him a homosexual (yeah, they probably called him something worse, but I'm going with the news story) and threatened to beat him up.
Seniors Travis Price and David Shepherd decided to take action.
"It’s my last year. I’ve stood around too long and I wanted to do something," said David.
The two bought 75 pink tank tops, pink material for head and wristbands, and contacted every student they could on the internet. They saved a shirt especially for the new student who had been bullied.
They figure that at least half of the student body of 830 came to school wearing pink, much to the detriment of the bullies.
Way to go, guys!
