Something Serious: Black Out Bullying

My son's school is participating tomorrow in "Black out Bullying", in which all students (and I hope staff as well) are encouraged to wear something black to make an anti-bullying statement.

Of course, the skeptic/pessimist can say that it's symbolic and will do no good, but it's positive for the kids to take part in it. That hope can be extended to the idea of preventing bullying from going on.

I can't stress enough how much I dislike bullying, and always had no tolerance for it - even as a student.

So bravo to the kids at Gayhead Elementary School for doing their part to black out bullying.
