Silent Strength Kindness

What Administrators & Teachers Are Saying:

Silent Strength

In 41 years, Chris Reavis (Doug’s younger brother who was born with severe brain damage), never uttered a single negative word about anyone, never hurt a single soul with any of his actions or deeds, and never asked for a single thing for himself while all the while showing love and kindness to anyone who would simply sit and talk with him – no matter who they were and without judging them. The profound positive impact that Chris had on the lives of countless individuals was immeasurable. Yet, he did it without ever speaking a single word.

CHRIS LIVED HIS LIFE LIKE THIS FOR 14,971 STRAIGHT DAYS (Jan. 14, 1971 – Jan. 20, 2012).
COULD YOU DO IT FOR A DAY?

TAKE THE “SILENT-STRENGTH PLEDGE” & SHARE IT WITH OTHERS… ONE DAY CAN MAKE A POSITIVE IMPACT ON ANOTHER PERSON’S LIFE FOREVER!

THE SILENT- STRENGTH PLEDGE:

“Today, my positive actions will speak louder than all of my words”

SILENT-STRENGTH KINDNESS PRESENTATION FOR STUDENTS
This is a 1 hour Presentation geared primarily toward the Middle School & High School age students (though, we can break it down a bit in order to share with grades 3-5 if requested). The Presentation revolves around the true story of the life of Doug’s little brother, Chris, who was born with severe special needs, as we use real-life stories, examples, and video to show the incredibly powerful impact that our words and actions can have on the lives of others (both negatively and positively). The goal of the Presentation is to show students that, perhaps, the true heroes in this world aren’t necessarily the people with the most fame, money, popularity, or power – but that they are most often the people just like themselves (and like Chris) who go out of their way to be kind to others on a daily basis. We provide students with the Silent-Strength Pledge: “Today, my positive actions will speak louder than all of my words,” and challenge them to (like Chris) be a “hero” to the people in their lives. We also include our YouUplift Kindness eWall platform, as a supplemental tool for everyone to use in order to “walk the walk” after we “talk the talk” – so to speak, as you can see on our Kindness Wall Page that the platform is a 100% positive, anonymous messaging platform that will ONLY display what you or your faculty moderator(s) APPROVE.
