BREVARD COUNTY • MERRITT ISLAND, FLORIDA – In 2018, Tropical Elementary kindergarten teacher Barbara Wilcox was teaching a unit on peace when her students decided there was a need for a universal symbol for kindness.

What started as a classroom vote turned into worldwide participation in choosing the perfect symbol. Fast forward to July of 2021…

Representative Bill Posey has sponsored House Resolution H.Res. 509 – The KIDS Resolution (Kindness is Daily Sunshine) to recognize the kindness symbol and to urge acts of kindness across the United States.

The resolution became bipartisan on July 17, when Representative Darren Soto co-sponsored as the Democratic lead. Representative Brian Mast has also announced his co-sponsorship.

Ms. Wilcox and her students are asking everyone to contact other U.S. representatives to co-sponsor the resolution and to encourage Senators Rick Scott and Marco Rubio to make a companion resolution in the Senate.

Additionally, you can sign the petition to make the kindness symbol a national symbol of kindness here.
