Pink Shirt Day

Today is Pink Shirt Day in British Columbia – and many other places in the world.  A year and a half ago a couple of guy at a high school in Canada led half the student body to protest the bullying of another student.  Their act on that day has turned into a movement as seen at http://www.pinkshirtday.ca.

The website has a large number of resources for dealing with bullying.  I am still working on getting my bullying thoughts onto paper (or the screen).  I wish I’d put this up earlier so people could take advantage of it in their schools, but today is also my birthday and that use of the date tends to get priority in my memory.
