Today is suicide awareness day and I have a daughter in middle school so I may just be dealing with bullying a lot. Or at least I'm aware of bullying on a whole new level.
When I picked up my daughter from school today I asked her how she felt about the subject and what she would share with others about acceptance. She thought about it for awhile and came up with this little sign pictured.
While I understand making a sign won't stop bullying, talking about it might. I've spoken with my daughter on several occasions about why people bully and why it's wrong and how not talking about it can be deadly. Suicide is never the answer.
If you're being bullied tell someone. If you don't have a resource to ask for help please call 1.800.RUNAWAY. Bullying can be stopped, it hurts everyone involved. Don't accept the behavior, there is help.
