Emily Bolton, a fifth grader at Maple Ridge, was discouraged last week when she saw how upset and sometimes angry people were with one another after the election.  She decided she wanted to do something about this.  She decided to make some bracelets to represent kindness and friendship, and handed them out to other students and faculty around the school.  Thanks Emily for helping make the world a better place!
