Honor and Adam – 2012

Believing you can change the world is the first step. In May of 2013 the world lost an amazing person. Her name was Honor and she was a bright light for many. Honor was my mentor teacher and we taught kindergarten together for a number of years. After her passing I felt there were so many people who were cheated out of getting to know her. To keep her memory alive I wrote a book about her titled, Yellow. This book reminds us all to seek out and find the people who make our days brighter, or more yellow, just by being the kind people they are. That challenge to others has sparked a worldwide movement called Yellow Day or Make Someone’s Day Yellow Day! It takes place each year on May 9, Honor’s birthday, and is a day to make the world a brighter place through kindness and compassion! Since it’s first celebration in 2016, Yellow Day has been celebrated in more than 35 U.S. states and 8 countries around the world! In 2019 two U.S. cities (Morris, IL and Chilliothe, OH) proclaimed May 9 – Yellow Day – officially as a day of kindness celebration! We are so excited to see Honor’s legacy of kindness spread to more schools, communities, states, and countries as it continues to gain attention. To see more, and follow all the amazing kindness that’s happening, follow @teacherslearn2 on Instagram and the hastags #betheyellow #makesomeonesdayyellow #yellowday.
