Dear Sentinel

Dear Sentinel,

When I went to all-day kindergarten, there was a girl in my class in the afternoon who wasn't very nice. She pulled my hair and hit me and said mean things to me.

Mom and I talked about how she was God's child, and I held guard over this in my thoughts. I tried to be loving and helpful to her. After a while, we became friends. My teacher said that she had seen a change in this girl's attitude toward others. She also remarked on how my being nice had really helped this girl. This is just one proof that God's power really does heal.
