Random Acts Of Kindness In Full Bloom in Texas!
By Abhinandan Srivatsa
Valentine’s Day can be a rather lonely, dreadful, and heartbreaking experience for people in high school. If you don’t have an admirer, you miss out on cutesy notes, flowers, and chocolates delivered to you secretly or put in your locker. But, this wasn’t to be the case at Axtell High School in Waco, Texas, for there was a sweet teenager, Jayme Wooley, a sophomore at the school. Wooley didn’t want any girls in his school to feel alone or left out for not receiving any gifts on valentine’s day. So he changed that by buying a flower to every one of them in his school.
What was the Inspiration?
Asked where the idea came from, Wooley said he had seen some girls not receive any gifts the previous valentine’s day and he felt he had to do something. Speaking to CNN, Wooley said: “Over the past couple of years that I’ve been at Axtell, not all of the girls were able to get flowers and stuff. Sometimes, it’d just be a secret admirer or popular girls. It felt heartbreaking knowing that not every girl was feeling special.” So, guess what he did? He enlisted his mother for help, bought 170 roses and handed them out to all the girls from grade 6 to grade 12 that came to school on Friday. “He handed me a flower and I thought it was really special because not everyone gets a flower on Valentine’s Day,” Kendall Sherrill, another sophomore, who received a rose from the 15-year-old, said.
