In my continuing search for ways that people really love their neighbors, I stumbled on this story about a high school student in Alberta, Canada who is the catalyst for “Positive Post It Day.”
When a fellow student posted a hateful comment on Caitlin Prater-Haacke’s Facebook page, telling her to die, Caitlin turned the tables on the bully. She created post it notes with positive messages and posted them – on every student’s locker in the entire school.
The administration didn’t see the love, though, and reprimanded Caitlin for what they considered littering the school.
Fortunately, the city of Airdrie saw the beauty in what Caitlin did and passed a resolution for Positive Post It Day. As Mayor Peter Brown says, “Positive begets positive.”
Consider taking time today to write a positive note to a friend, family member, or colleague.
