The Bully Project


DID YOU KNOW:

18 MILLION KIDS WILL BE BULLIED IN THE U.S. THIS YEAR.

3 MILLION STUDENTS ARE ABSENT EACH MONTH BECAUSE THEY FEEL UNSAFE AT SCHOOL?

Life is so very cruel sometimes, and sometimes there are mean nasty bullies that torture and make kids lives miserable, SO MISERABLE THAT THEY THINK THERE IS NO ONE TO HELP THEM AND THAT THE ONLY ALTERNATIVE TO THIS TORTURE DAY IN AND DAY OUT IS...SUICIDE.

Yesterday on The Enchanted Home, Tina wrote in her weekly update about her beautiful dream home a piece about The Bully Project. The Bully Project is a movie, and also a grassroots movement that is trying to stop bullying and to create a safer environment for our children at school.

Please go to The Bully Project and watch the trailer for the movie. I promise you that you will be moved to tears. When you see the pain that these poor children endure at the hands of bullies, or the parents who are weeping at the graves of their children who could not take another moment on this earth of being bullied, you will want to do whatever you can to spread the word. Even if you do not have kids, you have nieces or nephews or neighbors or cousins or brothers and sisters that you can help by becoming aware of this project.

Thank you Tina at the Enchanted Home for bringing this movie and movement to our attention.

  3. Elizabeth...thank you so much! I am sooooo glad you are speaking out about this. I am so happy that it touched as many people as it did, a handful of bloggers told me they too are going to be posting about this. THANK YOU! It has to be talked about though its such a hard thing to think about, it is everyones responsibility,, and every child in this world has the right to be shown respect and to have their dignity and confidence intact without someone stripping it away and leaving them to feel all alone. It is so incredibly sad that this is allowed to go on. THANK YOU AGAIN Elizabeth!!!!

    You are a tender and loving soul. God bless you for caring for these children. It is extremely sad and disturbing what is going on. I will watch the trailer and also pray for our youth.
    Blessings and hugs to you my dear.

  5. Thank you dear Elizabeth for this post, and many thanks to Tina for her interest in this cause. This is something that affected me as a child, and the emotional scars stay with you forever. I pray for all of the children, and I do have hope that this movement will only grow, expand, and educate schools to take true action.

    Blessings to you,

  6. Good morning darling friend,

    It sure was a special day for me last Saturday when I got to sit with Koralee, a woman with great talents and who also is an educator. Her heart is as true blue as the marvelous art of her bluebird images....we had such fun chirping away like two birds, not enough time to tell our stories, but certainly a slice of time that we got to share. HOW IS YOUR KITCHEN COMING ALONG????? I just love what you did. Now I am really looking at Paris Gray for my cabinets!!!

    BIG HUGS and wishes for a magical weekend! Anita
