“Finding Kind”
This documentary chronicles a journey across the country in which women of all ages speak about their lives and share personal experiences surrounding the issue of bullying.  The film uncovers some universal truths that are shared by girls all across the country. These shared experiences then serve as a platform where a common ground of kindness and mutual respect can be found. The film’s message is powerful and inspires action by placing the viewer in another person’s shoes.  On September 27th at 7pm there will be a free community screening in the auditorium of HVRHS for anyone interested in attending. This showing is FREE ! Please call the HYSB at 860-824-4720 for more information.
