Editor, the News:

In this age of bullying and torment it’s nice to think there may be a remedy still. Whenever I see a story of a student who reaches out to another in friendship, I smile.

Such a simple cure can be offered by an old song by the Staple Singers, “Reach out and touch a hand, make friends if you can.”

Simple, basic and timeless, just a handshake away.
