We are a group of 7th graders from Colorado who want to practice our writing and communication skills. We are excited to expand the walls of our classroom and collaborate with other classes! Please leave us comments and your blog URL, so we can respond back to you!
I chose quotes #3 by Dalai Lama ( "Compassion and tolerance are not a sign of weakness, but a sign of strength.") because it's a great quote to reflect on. People think that just by being nice you are "weak". People discriminate others because they think it's "cool", but really it's just being mean. Showing compassion and tolerance makes people want to like you because you are kind. If you are mean then they probably are just friends with you because they think you're scary. Instead of being mean, we should show kindness. If everyone reflected on their attitude towards people, how much different would the environment, everywhere, be!
