“Peacemaker,” Friend, Oct. 2005, 45
At recess I was playing with my friends when two girls started bossing another girl and saying they didn’t want to play with her. I noticed that the girl who was being picked on was sad. I asked her if she wanted to play with me, and we talked about the problem. She and I played for the rest of the recess. Then we talked to the other girls, and they agreed to play nicely together the next day. I felt good inside and knew that I had been a good friend and done the right thing.
