Caledonia Elementary School fourth-graders show support for choosing kindness over bullying by wearing Choose Kindness wristbands giv-
en to them by Junior Auxiliary of Columbus after one of the first presentations of JA’s new anti-bullying project in February. Geared toward
second- through fifth-graders, Choose Kindness equips children with tools to stand up to bullying and encourages them to seek help for
targets of bullying.

An anti-bullying message gives children tools to meet challenges

n a 1961 episode of “The Andy Griffith
Show,” young Opie is being targeted daily
by a school bully, shaken down for nickel
milk money with threats of a knuckle sand-
wich. Opie’s pa, Sheriff Andy Taylor, and An-
dy’s sidekick, Deputy Barney Fife, ponder
how to help the boy out of this jam. Within
a half-hour time frame, minus commercials,
the issue is neatly dispatched. Opie learns to
stand up for himself, and the bully learns his
lesson. Problem solved.
Only ... the wider world isn’t Mayberry,
and dealing with bullying is seldom so cut
and dried.
Bullying is nothing new, but it does seem
to have taken on a heightened sense of
significance and urgency in recent years.
