Bullied Boy Fights Back With Kindness

Holding Doors

I caught this story on The National the other day and thought it was worth another share. Check out what happened when Clarke Road SS student, Josh “The Doorman” Yandt, started holding doors open for his school mates. I realize that this isn’t the answer for all bullied children, but it’s definitely a cool story in this instance.

The best part about this story is that it carries a message we can all learn from. Kindness breeds kindness. If we all go out of our way to do something nice for someone else, even once a day, we can create a better community to be a part of. Rock on, Josh!

    Hi Chris,

    I have to admit to being a bit skeptical when I read the post title, but after watching the video I can see that Josh did come up with a great idea.

    That one young lady’s quote is telling: “It kind of surprised everybody at first because no one is really that nice in high school.”

    Oftentimes, we get to live in the kind of environment that we ourselves project. Kindness is contagious.

      Hi Ray, I’m not big into the misleading post titles. It does nothing to benefit anyone and there is certainly no money in it, lol. Glad you liked the video. It caught me by surprise and when that happens, I wrote about it.
