OK to Be Different

Caroline R., age 5, Florida

My family went to breakfast for my dad’s birthday. When the server asked us if we would like coffee, I said, “No, thank you. We don’t drink coffee.” The server looked surprised. It felt good to stand up for what I believe in, even if it makes me different from other people and kids at school.
