Picture this. A fifth-grader greets you with, “Good morning. I hope you’re having a good day,” as you enter the auditorium for an 8:05 a.m. assembly. A fellow parent texts you knowing that you have a busy week and offers to pick up your child from after-school chorus. A colleague puts a note in your mailbox expressing their appreciation for your working relationship. A newly admitted parent stops by your office to thank you for the positive experiences his children are having at Langley. And, it’s only 9:00 a.m.!

“Langley Students Support Love, Not Hate” is a campaign I started with two Langley friends after the inspiring words of a teacher. On Monday, October 29, Mr. McKinney, my former science teacher, gave a speech at our Monday morning meeting. Each Monday morning, our Middle School sits as a group and discusses upcoming events or goals for the week. As it was two days after the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh, not everyone was as cheerful as usual. Mr. McKinney addressed this, and explained to all of us how lucky we are to all be so fortunate and the amount of gratitude we should have every single day.
