When one of the kindergarten students burst into tears one morning, their teacher, Ms. Bemis and her classmates knew something was wrong. Raiza’s cat, Binx, got hit by a car and passed away. All the kids wanted to hug her so they did a virtual hug. One of the students said, “When we are back in school, we can give her a real hug.” Then the students drew, wrote, and talked about Binx. They were all showing kindness to a friend that really needed it at the moment. In the end, they all shared their pictures with Raiza, and you can see her smiling again. Thank you to all the K-1 students for showing kindness, and to Ms. Bemis for teaching the students a valuable lesson on kindness.
Binx was a fuzzy, midnight dark black cat with a yellow collar and two yellowish, greenish eyes. May Binx rest in peace and be reborn in the Pure Land.
