When Canadian teenager Caitlin Prater-Haacke was the victim of bullying, she didn’t get mad. She didn’t want to get even. Instead, she turned it into something positive.
Last month, a fellow student in George McDougall High School broke into Caitlin’s locker. They used her iPad to post messages to her Facebook page, saying that she should kill herself. Sickened by this act, Caitlin knew she had to do something. She bought hundreds of Post-it notes and put them all over her school in Airdrie, Alberta. She wasn’t vandalizing the school, though. She wrote uplifting messages on each note.
She just wanted to spread happiness…and did an amazing job.

She technically got in trouble, but it was worth it. She is the kind of girl we can all look up to. She took a cowardly act of bullying and turned it into a learning experience of love for everyone around her.
