Homecoming Prank Turns Positive

Bullying is a major problem. At least we’re hearing more about it–and talking more about it–now.

I love this CNN story about a sophomore girl nominated–as a prank–to the homecoming court. By embracing her nomination, when she was tempted to pull out, she had a positive experience. I imagine the experience of garnering courage and “choosing herself” will serve her well in the future. I also hope it will have been a lesson for the bullies.
