"Quite often these days young people get a bad rap, but anyone who is uncertain of the power and heart of America’s teenagers should meet Jeremiah Anthony. After coming across a story about school bullies torturing their victims via social media, Anthony decided to retaliate by creating a twitter account for which the sole purpose was spreading positivity to his classmates. Using the twitter handle @westhighbros, this Iowa City teenager and his friends have now sent over 3,000 tweets to members of the West High School student body, teachers, faculty and staff. The young men dole out daily compliments to friends who appear to need a pick me up, classmates in whom they see positive, appreciated personality traits, athletes preparing for a big game or celebrating a victory, and faculty who have gone out of their way to support the student body. The average visitor to this twitter feed is also likely to come across a good ole’ inspirational message to start the day." - Katie Patton
