The Butterfly Effect; Cyberbullying

By: Genevieve Puglissi Class: 801

Smile at Someone

A butterfly flapping its wings can create a tornado on the other side of the world. Now think what could happen if you just smiled a little more at a person. It could make their day, and yours too. The littlest thing can have the biggest impact on someone.

Compliment

Getting a compliment from someone is wonderful. But it is a little harder to compliment someone else. But when you do get the courage to compliment someone on their new clothes, technique, or anything for that matter, you can give that person the confidence to keep doing what they are doing. Not to stop being who they are but to embrace it.

Police Officer helps Homless Family get back on their Feet: Always Help someone No matter What

A Cop in Ohio saw a woman with her family sitting in the Police station. He did not think anything was wrong until they were there for many hours. The homeless mother explained to him that they had no where to go and the cop called local shelters but they were all either too crowded or had a time limit. The cop then put the family in a hotel for 10 days with money out of his own pocket. On the way to the hotel he realized the family did not have any personal belongings so he took the family to Walmart for what they needed. This is just one of the many acts of kindness in the world. If this police officer wasn't there, would the homeless family still have a place to go or suffered? Always help someone out no matter how dirty or disgusting they may look.
