    That was a nice article, Buddy. I work with teenagers and I see acts of kindness every day. We have a large Asperger's program at my school and many of my students volunteer for lunch bunch. Lunch bunch is a program where NT (neuro typical) students volunteer to eat lunch twice a week in the Asperger's classroom. They all play computer games and spend time together which helps the Asperger students with their social skills.

    We also have an anti-bullying program that is led by student leaders. The theme is "Stop Sipping on the Haterade" and we all wear t-shirts on Wednesdays with that logo.

    I believe that most teenagers are basically kind at heart. At least the ones that I work with day in and day out.

    I think so too. I grew over the years to love teaching mid and high school because I enjoyed them so much.

    The programs at your school sound lovely.
