Today is GLAAD’s Spirit Day, to raise support for and awareness about gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people–and specifically the bullying they endure. Since the 4 part bullying series I wrote revolving around the now defunct daytime drama One Life To Life, I have been collecting articles to write on–the sheer number of links and cases of escalating bullying activity and suicides has been overwhelming. I do plan to start posting on the subject again, because it’s THAT important. I have been reading this week about the entire sad saga of young Amanda Todd, and my heart continues to break for her and anyone suffering such severe mistreatment. Any traumatic experiences I had as a semi-ostracized teen pale so far in comparison that I wonder if I could survive being a teen in THIS age.
Something MUST be done. And I MUST do something. Let my voice be a start.
