I know for a fact that I'm not as kind as I could be. And as I get older, I try to do better in that department.

At my daughters school, they have a young student who is wheelchair bound and all of the students go out of their way to include him in their games and activities.

Then, on the other hand, we have political attacks so vicious, so hate filled, that it just makes you cringe.

And the kids are watching and listening. Is this how we want them to be? Do we preach kindness and acceptance at school, while approving character assassination in ads?

I wish we make elections more about the issues, and less about the attacks.
