  54. A BRIEF history of this presentation: Many years ago, after so many reports of school violence and news stories of what seemed like a string of school shootings, I was being asked by teachers to talk to students about a bullying & school violence. I was resistant. After many years working with youth in a variety of settings including with ‘at risk’ youth and behavior contracts, I just wanted to be a motivational speaker; I just wanted to speak to students about positive topics like goal setting and life choices. Then I came across the quote from Dr. King featured in this presentation. That quote inspired an epiphany for me to address school violence and bullying AND be motivational and inspirational. I learned it was NOT either / or it was both. In that one quote I realized the solution to violence is for good people to no longer remain silent and passive. Students of ALL AGES CAN & MUST DO GOOD EVERYDAY to make a positive difference in their life, their community and in their world. This is my presentation Promoting Peace Let me know what YOU think. byron@speaktostudents.com A Presentation from Byron & Speak to Students
