Quote of the Week

Choose To Be Kind

Last week, a young Orange County boy took his own life, he was 13 yrs old. He was seen as an introverted, friendless and passionate little scientist when he was just 8 years old. He would love to give science presentations to the class. Most of what he said went right over our heads, almost as if he spoke a different language. When kids are in the primary grades, they are often times {thankfully} oblivious to the superficial, unrealistic and cruel world that surrounds them. What their friends think of their new shirt, if they should or should not raise their hand for fear of being called a nerd. Physical appearance, social status and even body odor are not given a second thought and are just ignored and/or accepted. What a concept, I know! When did we get to this place? This land of disrespect, entitlement and just plain mean?

Why are children so non inclusive and insecure? Why do they mock, tease, torment and bully? Adults??! Can we do more? If so, what could it be? Why have we not encouraged and supported the notion of the golden rule? When did this become acceptable?! Children today are very much in need of a good dose of “What if...?” What if YOU were the boy who was teased? What if you were the girl who was scared to tell anyone what happened to her at her best friend’s house? What if you were the boy who was desperate to be included on the basketball court at recess?

This boy was not your “typical kid.” He was extraordinary. He had a beautiful mind. But none of that matters if you have a broken heart and aren’t a part of something bigger. As I observed how people I know began to react to the news I realized something. We’re missing the mark here, people! Instead of feeling heartbroken for a boy you’d never sit with, talk with or even make eye contact with, think about what you could have done differently. Could you have given him a simple, “Hey!” while passing him in the halls? Could you have invited him to play a game of basketball? Could you have accepted him for who he was and complimented his knowledge of the cosmos? Could you begin to feel secure enough about yourself to not have the need to spew negativity and hurt that stays with us for a lifetime? We MUST start talking WITH our kids about how we treat each other, and how WE can be less mean. It's the little things that matter...Like saying, "hi". Prayers to his family. May he Rest In Peace.

NOTE: If you or a loved one is feeling distressed, please remember help is available through the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. It provides free and confidential emotional support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can also call a loved one, member of the clergy or 911.
