Be kind to people, especially those that are different from you. We are stronger together than we are by ourselves. The Super Non-Heroes by Taryn Temple is an incredible play for middle-schoolers with an equally incredible message.

Sometimes the hardest part of school is getting from one class to the next. No one wants to make eye contact. No one wants to reach out when they see others in need. It’s toxic out there in the hallway of purgatory.

So what do we do? How can we look after others if we can’t even look after ourselves? You might be late for class, but you’re on time for the meaningful change that’s going to take place.
