I wanted to share something with you today. I truly believe this is something most people “push” aside and that is where the problem starts. Tomorrow is
National STAND UP to BULLYING day… This means we ALL need to wear
to bring awareness to EVERYONE around us!!!
Let me tell you a little bit about how this started…
“David Shepherd, Travis Price and their teenage friends organized a high-school protest to wear pink in sympathy with a Grade 9 boy who was being bullied…[They] took a stand against bullying when they protested against the harassment of a new Grade 9 student by distributing pink T-shirts to all the boys in their school. ‘I learned that two people can come up with an idea, run with it, and it can do wonders,’ says Mr. Price, 17, who organized the pink protest. ‘Finally, someone stood up for a weaker kid.’
So Mr. Shepherd and some other headed off to a discount store and bought 50 pink tank tops. They sent out message to schoolmates that night, and the next morning they hauled the shirts to school in a plastic bag.As they stood in the foyer handing out the shirts, the bullied boy walked in. His face spoke volumes. ‘It looked like a huge weight was lifted off his shoulders,’ Mr. Price recalled. The bullies were never heard from again.”
So you see… We can make a difference. They have a really cool website called
If you go to this website you can find out SO much more about what YOU can do. This needs to STOP! I do believe everyone has encountered a BULLY at some point in their life.
It can be a friend, someone your friend knows, a stranger and even a FAMILY member! Can you believe that! It’s not just happening in schools! It’s happening ALL OVER. Adults have to deal with this too. It’s just not nice! AND IT HURTS! I just want you to know I LOVE YOU and there is ALWAYS someone who can help you!!!
BULLY’S are WEAK. They ONLY prey on WEAK people. UNTIL THAT WEAK PERSON TAKES A STAND….
Let’s take a stand and wear pink tomorrow! That’s not hard!
Please post your pictures to my facebook page!!! We want the world to see what WE are doing!!!
