My friend is a teacher deep in South L.A. Just recently, he lost three students who were shot in gang related incidents. Today, he tagged me on Instagram with this photo below. It’s a photo of his 7th grade boys’ #5mostbeautifulthings. He said they were having their weekly chat and the boys started to get macho with their talk of sex and violence so he used the 5 most beautiful things project to bring them back.
I was so moved by this!
Take a peek at some of the things they wrote. Girls, video games, my mom, Ganesh (loved that one!)
Beauty transforms. I don’t care where or who you are. It transforms.
Follow me on Instagram at @jenpastiloff and post a pic with hashtag #5mostbeautifulthings. Tag me and write why it’s one of your things. I share some of them!
Please share this post as I would love people to see how powerful this project really is.
With love and beauty,
