Kindness Presentations

What Administrators and Teachers Are Saying:

The words BULLY and BULLYING were not used one single time. Yet, this was, HANDS DOWN, the best anti-bullying program we've EVER had here. EVER!

What Administrators and Teachers Are Saying:

In 25 years of public education, I have never heard a more motivating presentation.

What Administrators and Teachers Are Saying:

Most powerful assembly I've witnessed in my 30 years as a teacher at CCMS!

What Administrators and Teachers Are Saying:

I have NEVER seen a group of middle school students who were more mesmerized by a speaker...and I've been in this school system for 40 years!

What Administrators and Teachers Are Saying:

We have had some really good assemblies in the past 9 years since I've been here, but none as powerful and moving as Silent-Strength.

What Administrators and Teachers Are Saying:

I wish you could have heard all of the kids buzzing about when, where, and how they were going to take their Silent-Strength Pledge! You definitely touched all of our lives with your message. It was a phenomenal program!

What Administrators and Teachers Are Saying:

WOW...that was the word on everyone's lips at the end of Doug's program! Need a Speaker? Stop looking and contact Doug now! The message he delivers will leave you mesmerized, inspired, and ready to take on any challenges that life may throw at you!

What Administrators and Teachers Are Saying:

As a teacher for 20+ years...I have never seen a Speaker who made such an impact on our students.

What Administrators and Teachers Are Saying:

I can't even begin to tell you the impact you made here at Blue Ridge. The ripples keep moving out...it's the best and most important program we have ever had here!

School Assembly Objectives For Students:

  • To illustrate the cause and effect that our words and actions have on others.
  • To motivate and encourage students to reach out for those who are in need of help.
  • To motivate and encourage students to practice "Silent-Strength" in their daily lives.

What Students Are Saying:

I’m not normally a bully, but I know sometimes I follow the crowd in my actions (such as running away from people and mocking them). But today you made me realize that’s not who I am, and that I can be kind to everyone. Today I pledge that my actions will speak louder then all my words, but not just today - everyday.

What Students Are Saying:

You have inspired me more than I think anyone could - ever. I've never been a nice girl, and that's sad. I'm in the 8th grade... I pick on a couple kids. After you shared, I went straight to lunch and I invited them over to my table, and we laughed and I found out that they're amazing kids, and I'm happy to say I'm going to be taking that pledge.

What Students Are Saying:

My friend standing next to me said, and I quote 'Man, he made me want to be a better person.' What you do makes so many other lives better - like a chain reaction...

What Students Are Saying:

I'm a student at Hurley High School. Today, Chris' story, was shared with us. I've never been so touched by something in my life. It brought me to tears. It's such an amazing story and I thank you so much for sharing it with everyone!

What Students Are Saying:

That was honestly the best program our High School ever had. Your brother is truly a hero. You changed a lot of people's minds, and you made people think differently towards the way they treat everyone. You are honestly a life saver.

What Students Are Saying:

The program you did at my school was the most touching thing I've ever experienced in my life...You really do make a difference in people's lives.

What Students Are Saying:

His story totally changed my life! I was picking on a kid, but after I heard his story, I changed. I hope when other people hear his story, it will change their life too. Thank you so much!

What Students Are Saying:

Thank you so much for coming to our school. My life changed within one hour today, and I will never be the same person ever again because of it.

What Students Are Saying:

One of my students was so startled and moved by your visit that he could hardly speak to me when we got back to the classroom. He told me he has picked on other kids for a long time. He says that God sent you to speak to him, to tell him your story so that he could understand why he needs to change.
