Goodness rising like a phoenix
This story on CNN inspired me: Bullies Beware.
It tells about Olivia, a young girl who was mercilessly bullied by her peers at school. She even considered suicide. Then, two other children from another school heard about her situation from a news show about bullying, and they wrote to her, encouraging her. They started a letter campaign with their classmates to send her messages of love and support. The whole thing turned around.
I hope you’ll read the story and some of the comments afterward from readers. Although some of the worst of human behavior is described, some of the best comes out as well. And, like what we’ve been discussing about healing this week, sometimes it takes the problems in life to bring us the most inspiration.
When we see goodness rising like a phoenix from the ashes of human cruelty, we know that this is the reality after all. And even the bullies will see it someday.
