October is anti-bullying month. Reading the news of the young girl in BC who was bullied online so badly that she took her own life–and yet her bullies are still going after her on a Facebook page her mother has kept open in memorial to her — has touched many of us. Mandy Roth and Yasmine Galenorn have put together a special day when many authors will be sharing our experiences and stories.
Want to know how you can help? Easy… help us spread the word about what we’re doing. Tell your friends. If you can, stop past each blog and try to comment, even if it’s just quick to show the world we are united against this. If you have a story about being bullied or bullying has touched your life in some way please do share it in the comment sections of the blogs this Friday Oct 19th, or even post to your own FB, blog, etc. We want people talking about this. We want those who are being bullied or who have been bullied to know they are NOT alone and they do MATTER. You are ALL welcome to use the Authors Against Bullying graphics to help spread the word about our cause. I’m adding a smaller one here. Thank you so much for helping us try to make a difference.
