Cupcakes are just....

During one of the rare times when we had just one of our grades in class, one of the girls started talking about a cute poster that she'd seen online somewhere, something like this:

She wrote it on the board and the kids there all laughed and then went about their work.  But the most interesting thing happened a few minutes later, when the younger kids came back.  Most of them saw the message, laughed too, and went back to work.  Except for one small girl, who looked at the message, thought for a moment, and then reached up and erased the word "ugly," picked up a marker and wrote the word "different" in it's place. No one else noticed, but I was happy to witness such a beautiful moment.
