“A Kind Hello,” Friend, Oct. 2009, 39
There’s a girl on my bus who acts a little different. She doesn’t have any friends, and everyone is mean to her. I felt bad, so I went over and said hi. She wanted me to sit with her, so I did. Now I often sit with her on the way to school. She seems happier, and that makes me feel good. I have a little sister with special needs, and I hope someone will do the same for her when she grows up.
