Thanks for posting it, it reaffirms ones belief that the vast majority of our youth are incredible, caring and aware.

7. You are welcome!

It's nice to know that we have kids like that in this country! I couldn't help it. I had to e-mail the Principle!

9. I have no doubt he appreciated your e-mail commending him, his staff and students!

All too often we, myself included for sure, are very quick to fire off an e-mail when we don't like something but too seldom fire one off showing appreciation and acknowledgement of good things.

Well done!

13. Good point, I hesitated on doing that because I am in Canada but...

appreciation shouldn't stop at the border. Thanks for the push, I will fire one off too!

5. My coworker's daughter also

She has Downs and was elected homecoming queen. Personally I don't really like the guy but I congratulated him and he beamed with pride.
