A professional wrestler spent his morning outside of the ring and inside an East Tennessee school teaching a lesson in kindness.
Glenn Jacobs, better known as Kane in the WWE, spoke to Fountain City Elementary students Wednesday.
He taught the messages of “The Kindness Revolution, “which focuses on promoting integrity, respect, and recognizing when kids do kind acts.
For Kane, the message he teaches is a personal one.
“I think everybody at some point in their life is one side of being bullied or the other, and that’s unfortunate. And it is important to me because of course our kids are the future, so the more that someone like me can do to help get the message out the better,” said Kane.
After Kane spoke, he gave every child a “Pay it forward” bracelet. The idea is the students will hand out a bracelet when they see one of their friends doing a kind act.
