As I posted a few weeks ago, my book "My Friend Timmy" is about being kind and inclusive to a child with special needs and how it is the "cool" thing to do. This book is my statement about inclusion not exclusion and having love and understanding for someone who is perhaps different or who has special needs. That book just won a Book Excellence Award for children's education and I am very proud of that. However, I am most proud that the staff of Literary Excellence.com agrees with me about the importance of being caring and kind. A good mantra to remember whether you are young or not so young in age (but always young in heart) is the mantra below.
When you want to say something...stop and THINK:
T - is it True?
H - is it Helpful?
I - is it Inspiring?
N - is it Necessary?
K - is it Kind?
If it's not, maybe it's better unspoken. That's the Cool thing to do!
