A Peacemaker Saves a Life

A Peacemaker Saves a Life

Because the Peacemaker had relationships with these girls, could witness their behaviors at school, and could recognize they were acting unusually, the Peacemaker was able to reach out to GLA’s teachers to get these girls the help they needed.

It was Anisha’s birthday. But, when the Potter’s Wheel Peacemaker went to visit her GLA classroom, Anisha seemed sad, which was not like her. The Peacemaker talked with Anisha during class, but her mood never improved. Later that same day, the Peacemaker was in a classroom with Anisha’s sister, Kari, who was under the table crying. One of the questions the Peacemaker asked was, “Do you feel safe?” Kari said, “No.” The Peacemaker could see that both of the girls were acting strangely, and she shared this with Kari’s teacher. The teacher then spoke with the school’s social worker. The social worker pulled the two girls out of their classes and asked them about what was going on. The social worker heard enough to know that there was an unsafe situation at home, and she called CPS to help protect the girls. Because the Peacemaker had relationships with these girls, could witness their behaviors at school, and could recognize they were acting unusually, the Peacemaker was able to reach out to GLA’s teachers to get these girls the help they needed.
