In an era where middle school children have perhaps become most known for bullying peers and terrorizing teachers, one fine young man is restoring our hope.
Teacher Winston Lee described the student as a “straight A+ guy” who had a track record of performing at the top of his class. At the end of his most recent test, the boy left a note for Mr. Lee at the bottom that has tugged at the heart strings of over 35,000 people across the web in just three days.
In the viral post, Winston writes:
“Have to shout this out. Had honestly never seen this…
One of my guys, a straight A+ guy, offers up his 5 bonus points to someone in need. Anyone. Totally offering up what is rightfully his, his earning, to any peer that may have been struggling especially hard the day of the test.
He didn’t care if he considered them a friend, didn’t care if they were cool, didn’t matter to him what situation had caused them to score lower, he just wanted to help, be kind, commit a loving act.
This note gave me so much hope. Let us all be a little more like this young man!!”
