Nine students from Leslie Middle School gave a presentation to the Marion County Board of Commissioners today in preparation for the 21st Annual National Hands & Words Are Not For Hurting Week.

Leslie students will join peers from across the United States, Canada, Mexico and 15 other countries worldwide in committing to the Hands & Words Are Not For Hurting Pledge: “I will not use my hands or my words for hurting myself or others.“®

The nine students each wrote speeches and shared from their hearts about what they would change to make the world a better place. Their thoughts and ideas are both profound and thought provoking considering today’s world.

The Marion County Board of Commissioners approved a proclamation today recognizing next week as 21st Annual National Hands & Words Are Not For Hurting Week.

At its meeting on October 9, 2018, the Salem-Keizer School Board also proclaimed October 14-21, 2018, as the 21st Annual National Hands & Words Are Not For Hurting Week.
