Open Road Media

It’s time for Marcus to get his hair cut, but today his mom is busy so he has to walk to the barbershop alone. On the walk there, Marcus sees a lot of bad news—buildings covered in graffiti, people drinking outside a liquor store, and police cars everywhere. By the time he reaches Mr. Jackson’s barbershop, he feels pretty low. Mr. Jackson and everyone else in the shop can see that Marcus is upset. One by one, they tell him all about the good news that’s in their neighborhood. As Marcus walks home, he not only sees good news, he decides he’s going to be good news.
