From the ashes

After Annie called me from the park, crying because one of the boys from her class picked her up and dropped her on the ground, I tore out of the apartment and took off running. By the time I got there the boy was gone, and Annie was sitting on a bench being comforted by her friends. Also by her side were the two seventh grade "mean girls" who only two days ago were shoving her and calling her names.

I was angry and confused, until they handed me this note.

and somewhere Gandhi smiles ... that's what ahimsa is all about - enemies become friends ...

I'm starting to think this is going to make a great movie.

I love this! I agree with Shawn that Gandhi is smiling. And I agree with Aaron -- this is the stuff of stories.
