I learned that it is always better to be kind no matter what. The lesson in this story is something more people in this world should understand but sadly they don't. The snowman had a very closed mind and didn't think in the slightest that other beings had feelings too. The scarecrow had a very open mind and understood that everyone should be worthy of love no matter what race, species, gender, or sexual identity they are. So overall I believe that more people should take the scarecrow's example and always be kind.
