An elementary school teacher in Texas was running low on pencils in her classroom so she asked her students to share any extras that they had in their desks. One of those students however, asked if it was okay if he kept his. He then changed his mind and decided to share them. It turns out he wanted to keep them, because his mom had written positive messages on each one. She wrote things like "you are creative", "never give up" and "you are so talented" in tiny lettering on each pencil. The student decided to share them so that other kids could get the same positive messages he got whenever he picked up a pencil. The teacher pointed out that no every kid is lucky enough to have someone to tell them how special they are and that each child deserves to hear uplifting messages too.
Congratulations to Queensbury's Delaney Silvernell who advances to another week on NBC's The Voice.
She was on team Kelly Clarkson, but wasn't chosen by her to continue. However, she was snatched up by Adam Levine to be on his team. So, she continues on and has no hard feelings about Kelly not selecting her.
