Be the shoulder that people can cry on, and the voice that stands up in what they believe in.
quote by: Olivia W., 8th Grade, Sarasota Middle School, Sarasota, Florida
teacher: Colleen Joiner
We have so many different religions, races and lifestyles. Our world can be as fragile as an egg. In my piece I have represented some of our differences on eggs. The final egg, which is the world, is broken to illustrate our fragility and how important it is to be sensitive and respectful of our differences. I teach first grade in a very diverse community and, as a teacher of young children, I am constantly mindful of how important it is to treat each other with respect and caring.
