Kids are awesome!

My school’s NHS raised over $22,000 in donations to help the local Humane Society. You can read about it here
A young lady raised $500 for cancer research from change donations during lunches. She’s shaving her head tomorrow morning. Our assistant principal let her shave his today at lunch.
I hear all the time that teenagers today are punk kids who don’t care about anyone but themselves.
The thing is kids like the ones I started this post with aren’t all that unusual. They care deeply about Darfur and homelessness and the drug wars in Mexico. Many of them are spending the next week of spring break helping others.
So yeah, they might be a little self-centered at times. Who isn’t?
I’m proud of my kids, and I’m glad I teach teenagers today.
