Random Acts of Kindness-Another Bully Bites the Dust

In a heart-warming story, two students in Nova Scotia stood up against bullying.

In response to harassment of a fellow student for the grave sin of wearing a pink shirt, high school seniors David Shepherd and Travis Price encouraged others to wear pink as a sign of solidarity.

Reminds me of "Not in Our Town," a true story of how
more than 10,000 people in Billing's Montana stood up to anti-semitism by placing menorahs in their windows.

Perhaps David and Travis could tour the US, with a first stop being in Jena, Louisiana to help the young blacks unjustly imprisoned after a response to a racist hate crime was blamed on them.

I wish them well, and hope they will keep up their good work!
