WATCH: Kindergartners Go Viral for the Way They Show Kindness to One Another Every Day

Published

on

A kindergarten class in Birchwood, Wisconsin has learned an incredibly simple lesson in kindness, and all from assigning a daily “classroom greeter”.

Nicole Schlapper, their teacher, shared with Good Morning America that she hopes this daily “small, simple gesture of friendship and kindness” the students make “will stay with them as they grow up together throughout their years, in school and into adulthood.”

“The children absolutely love this job and show great excitement when their turn comes up,” Schlapper added. This simple addition to their morning, she continued, has “been a wonderful way for the children to connect with each other, build relationships and show kindness. I truly believe it promotes a sense of community and sets a positive tone for the day.”

The idea is rightfully going viral and spreading to other classrooms after 5-year-old Colin Baker was featured doing his “greeter” job in a video posted to the district’s Facebook page. On Colin’s day to greet, the majority of his 15 classmates chose hugs.

“I think most of the kids choose hug just because Colin is such a good hugger,” his mom, Chrisstie Baker told GMA. “He puts his heart into every one. I’m very proud of him.”

Sara Waldron, the school’s business and information technology teacher, noted that the district has a high number of students living in poverty: “As a school, we worry about funding, but what we lack in resources, we make up in love and compassion. With so many tragedies in our neighboring communities in the last month, it is so amazing to receive such positive feedback from so many people all over the world.”

Baker hopes that the viral video of her son teaches adults the same valuable lesson it taught Colin: “I hope that adults can learn from him and his friends that it’s OK to get out of their comfort zone and make someone else’s day. And to put our all into even the smallest things, like a hug.”

Starting the day off right!

Students in Mrs. Schlapper's class are greeted each day by one of their friends. They can receive a hug, a high five, a fist bump, a wave or a handshake. What a great way to start the day!

Instead Of Abolishing Police, How About Abolishing Abortion And Planned Parenthood? OPINION

Published

on

Over the last several weeks, we’ve all witnessed our nation being further destroyed and torn apart by individuals who claim to be fighting against racism and police brutality. We’ve watched as these same folks burn businesses to the ground in the name of peace, a message stuffed to the gills with oxymoronic irony that appears to be lost on folks who are trying to justify this behavior on the grounds of the cause we now know as “black lives matter.” That’s a phrase we’ve heard a lot lately. And you know what? It’s true. Black lives really do matter. Black lives are image bearers of God, which means they have intrinsic value and worth. Black lives are no different than lives of any other color or ethnicity. Adam and Eve are our first parents. Our blood is the same shade of red. Our ancestry is the exact same when you trace it back to the beginning. We all suffer from the same fallen nature, the same sinful disposition, that has earned us a place under the wrath of God, with our only hope being Jesus Christ and the work He accomplished through His life, death, and resurrection. Since black lives really do matter, instead of abolishing police departments, we should all be united in a fight against the ultimate destroyer of the black community: Abortion. Yes, instead of tossing out police departments, we ought to be giving Planned Parenthood the boot. More black lives have been taken at abortion clinics than have ever been killed by evil, twisted police officers. And that’s not to make light of police brutality. It’s a real thing. It exists. Perhaps we as conservatives have been so gung-ho in the past about blindly supporting police that we’ve ignored that reality. Well, it’s hard to ignore…

Mississippi Governor Delivers Message Condemning The Burning Of Church That Opposed COVID-19 Restrictions

Published

Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves released a statement on Thursday condemning the burning of a church that had opposed the restrictions put in place concerning the spread of the coronavirus. The church had filed a lawsuit against the state for its prohibition on large gatherings. Reeves took to Twitter and stated that he was both “heartbroken and furious” with the shameful action that was taken against the church. “What’s this pandemic doing to us?” he asked in his post. “We need prayer for this country.” Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: The church, First Pentecostal Church in Holly Springs, burned to the ground sometime early Wednesday morning, according to police. Grafitti was found in the parking lot reading, “I Bet you stay home now you hypokrits.” The burning is being investigated as arson. “We’re in a time where I don’t think it’s any secret that there’s a growing hostility toward churches, across the board,” Thomas More Society senior counsel and lawyer for the church Stephen Crampton told Fox News. “And now, here are churches like First Pentecostal that are sort of stirring up the waters by being outspoken and somewhat firm about seeking to protect their constitutional rights.” The church had filed a lawsuit back in April after the pastor of the congregation was given a ticket for holding a drive-in service on Easter, which happens to be one of the most important holidays for Christians, who celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead on that day. This belief is the foundation of the Christian faith and it is shameful to not be able to celebrate it together with other believers. Especially when this church was willing to compromise and simply worship from their vehicles and maintain social distancing guidelines. A district attorney later ruled in favor…
