Note to Students on Inauguration Day

Teacher's Inauguration Day Note to Students Is Exactly What All Kids Need to See

On Jan. 20, many Americans grappled with the fact that Donald Trump became the 45th president of the United States, but this second grade teacher gave their students some reminders we can all appreciate. Author Peter Shankman posted an image from a teacher's whiteboard with some notes to the students.

"Today is a very important day, today is Inauguration Day!" the teacher wrote. "This means that starting today, we will have a new president. His name is Donald Trump and he will live at the White House. However, what happens at your house is very important too!! You can make the world a better place by starting at your house."

The teacher then proceeds to list out some things that the students "can do to make the world a better place," and it's something we all need to be reminded of on this emotional day. "Love yourself! Listen to your parents. Be responsible. Be kind. Celebrate the differences in others. Believe in yourself! Be happy. Have fun in school. AND REMEMBER: Love and kindness RULE!!"

Although these second graders may not truly understand what our country is going through, they've witnessed a lot of political division over the last few months, and at such a young age, it's important that teachers and parents stress the importance of kindness and acceptance.

Many people have responded to this photo with other suggestions for young children, and even we adults can appreciate this.
