A couple of weeks ago a childhood friend and I were reminiscing about our days in high school and the meat heads that used to hang out at the “trophy cases”- these guys were your stereotypical bullies (where are they now?). Fortunately I was never the butt of their jokes, but I did witness a lot of other kids getting bullied. Fast forward a couple of decades and I have a feeling bullying is a lot worse. I can’t even imagine what it must be like being in high school with the addition of social networking sites like Facebook (wasn’t being bullied at school enough?).
The reason I’m bringing this up is because today is the 3rd annual Pink Shirt Day (a national campaign designed to raise awareness about bullying) and it’s the launch date of Speak Out: The Documentary (a local film created to get kids talking about bullying).
So get out there and wear your pink shirts today people and remember all of those kids who were bullied. Since L’il E and I are on vacay in Florida I’ll be sporting my PINK golf shirt on the links. Hopefully there won’t be any bullying on the course.
