As I prepare for next months events...take this SERIOUSLY!
If you follow my blog, facebook, rss, or twitter feed, you've seen some posts about bullying lately. October is National Bullying Prevention Awareness month. As I've been preparing for the next month and all the things Amy and I have planned, I was at work the other day speaking with some girls about everything that October represents. They were not aware of it being Bulyying Awareness Month. Now, this is the first ever post that I have brought to you not pertaining to books. The reason why is because one of those girls came back to me today telling me how a student that went to school with her son had died in a car crash about a week ago. This kid was seventeen, on the honor roll, and always seemed to be in happy spirits. She said that her son came home last night and told her that the car crash didn't kill him. He commited suicide. Could it have been bullying that drove him there? We all go about our day so carelessly sometimes and don't think about what we do. We just act. My friend knew that kid and couldn't believe that he could do such a thing, yet he did. I beg of you, please help spread the word in the month of October. Bullying needs to stop. There is absolutely no reason for it. It is uncalled for. Unessessary, and just plain cruel. Sometimes it happens without anyone realizing it. Sometimes, we choose to have a blind eye. PLEASE.MAKE.A.STAND!
