I don't know if that changed his mind about his intolerance.  I don't know if it changed his views in life.  I do know that it changed that situation.  I do know that I felt awesome for sticking up for my friends.

Be the Reason...
I found out that within 1 day all the post it notes were taken from the board and given to staff and students.  I was stunned that it only lasted a day but, super stoked that everyone was receptive to the idea and that they acted on it.  In the days that followed, the principal came up to me to thank me and told me that everyone LOVED the idea.  I loved that she loved it and I offered to put more up. She said she would have the kids put up their own.  So, I did one better.  I sent in packets of post it notes for each person in each class of the school to fill out one post it note and put on the board.  That was effective and the kids got to take part.

Don't Be Afraid To Be Yourself

Don't be afraid to be yourself.  First, you have to know yourself and then you can truly be yourself.  It may take years.  Embrace your own kind of weirdness and revel in the fact that there is no one ever exactly like you and that is a great thing.

The Herb is the Word
“Push here for the stinger” the box says.  I notice a box full of bees sitting on top of a table with the humorous sign.  Julian Lane provided an inside look of what a River Region bee keeper does at the Herb Fest.

“We need more lemons for lemonade” stated Mrs. Daigle as we talked about attendance.  “That has to mean something” and it definitely does!  Although there way to calculate a definite headcount, the staff at the SMM Fair expected 30,000 people over the entire weekend of the 46th annual festivities.
