    #Awesome: Teens Use Tweets to Spread Some Love

    Happy Monday, girls!

    We read an awesomely inspiring story this weekend and wanted to share it with all of you right away. HooplaHa.com (a website dedicated to spreading good news and making you smile) recently posted a video called “A Sincere Compliment” about high school junior Jeremiah and his Twitter page @westhighbros. Launched in October 2011, the page is full of compliments that Jeremiah has penned to his fellow classmates.

    In the video below, sweetheart Jeremiah explains that he created the account (adapted from a Facebook page of the same name) to challenge online bullying. By using the Internet for good, Jeremiah is combating the often hateful and painful things teens will say about each other online, when they are able to hide behind a computer screen.

    “We just send compliments to people who we think are feeling bad a certain day or who have done something really good, like winning a state title,” he explained to the Huffington Post. “I believe that showing the goodness in people is very integral to our account, because so many people on Twitter and Facebook get cyberbullied because they’re less than perfect.”

    Jeremiah also uses the video segment to make it clear that none of us is perfect, and that we should focus on being the best we can and being nice to each other – something we think we can all agree on.

    Girls, what did you think of the video? Did it inspire you to reach out to your peers with kindness?

    1. This just goes to show that when you are kind,you get kindness in return!!!! 😀 The internet would be so much safer and easier to deal with if people used their facebook and twitters to do good and spread the word of God.
