Stop Bullying

May Your Candle Always Shine Bright

Don't Bully!

Don’t Bully!

“Brothers & Sisters”. . . why do we torment and hurt one another?
Is bullying linked to Darwin’s theory of “survival of the fittest?”
Like Rams or Elephant Seals vying for hierarchy amongst peers? Do. Live. Do. Live.

Lyrics from Coldplay:
Brothers and sisters unite
It’s the time of your lives
It’s the time of your lives
Break down, break down
Got to spread love around
Got to spread it around

My Grandmother helped me look it up – my nickname – but after reading it, I couldn’t figure out how this little insect had anything to do with my mother being 1/2 Chinese and my dad being 1/2 African American…

My Grandmother didn’t explain, she simply said – there are ignorant people in this world. Don’t listen to them. Hold your head high.

In high school – one of the boys who chastised me in middle school asked me on a date! Now athletic & “cute” – he forgot my heritage – but though I forgave – I hadn’t forgotten how he made me feel, nor believed his change of heart to be sincere. His loss.
