Most people would take offense and attempt to get revenge, when they’re cyberbullied in a vicious manner like Caitlin Prater Haacke of Alberta, Canada. On her Facebook feed, she was told to die. Especially her mother, who saw it first, was devastated and shocked to say the least.
In response, Caitlin decided to write positive affirmations for her fellow students on post-it notes and stuck them to all the lockers at her high school. After some initial concern from school officials, the idea spread like wildfire through the community and they have now established a Positive Post-It Day throughout the town.
Not only are students writing positive messages on post-it notes, but adults at places like local banks are doing it as well. Caitlin’s simple idea has turned into a movement that is putting smiles on people’s faces!
