“Being a Good Example,” Friend, Oct. 2002, 41
A girl in my school is in first grade like me. She wears thick glasses and sometimes has trouble doing simple things at school. She has to have someone help to get her lunch.
One day when I was walking into the girls’ rest room, I heard a group of girls laughing. They were laughing at this girl and making fun of her. I turned away and didn’t laugh. I hope I was being a good example to the girls who were laughing. I know we should be kind to everyone, especially to those who need special help.
