Teenaged pranks can come back to haunt
Mitt Romney does not strike anyone as a bully, but learn important lessons from this high school prank.
1. Pranks or errors in judgment can come back to bite you when you least expect it. Act accordingly. When you go along with others, you get tarnished by their actions.
2. Be aware that “put downs” may seem funny to those dishing them out but rarely do you comprehend the extent of the hurt done to those on the receiving end. They may laugh it off to cover up their pain but the hurt and damage lasts much longer than your feeling of superiority.
3. Pass forward support, not pain. Kindness never goes out of style.
