October is National Anti-Bullying Awareness Month. An article in the Huffington Post states one incident of bullying happens every seven minutes. Wow! By the time you read this post and watch the YouTube video below someone will have to deal with bullying.
Needless to say, this has become a major problem that needs our attention. Bullying can end with serious consequences, even suicide. And it is not limited to a particular age.
Time for action against bullying
Hopefully throughout Anti-Bully Month many people will become aware, and do something about it. A few individuals and companies have already started to take action in some awesome ways.
People doing something about bullying
Lamar Tyler, of BlackandMarriedWithKids.com has directed and produced a music video to bring attention to the bullying problem we face today. Kim Harvey, of Angels and Doves, has written a book, created a national movement, and organized an event (see below) to educate and equip children, parents, and educators to save lives from bullying.
Ways to bring awareness
Both are doing excellent work to support anti-bullying. Watch the video below, Mike Bully (Stand Up For Our Future), and please share with your friends. If you are in the Midwest, come and ride with other anti-bully supporters at tomorrow’s Angel Ride Music Festival & Charity Ride.
