Day Of Silence

April 16, 2010 at 7:00 am (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , )

Today is the day people all over the country are silent. They will not speak when spoken to; they will not scream when hurt; they will not laugh when tickled; they will not growl when angry. Why?

Because today is the Day of Silence.

The Day of Silence – when everyone is not to speak – was created to honor those who have suffered. The homosexuals; the bisexuals; the transgenders; the victims of abuse, harassment, and bullying; the cutters; those who have committed suicide because their voice was not loud enough to speak out. For those whose voices are too weak to permeate the opaque shroud of society, for those whose voices could not be heard over the screaming of a thousand souls, we have created this day.

We mimic their silence so that we may scream louder than a thousand souls. We mimic their silence so that our voices may be strong enough to permeate the opaque shroud of society. We mimic their silence, so that we may make a noise louder than they ever could.

This is the Day of Silence, and this issue is real. Speak up. Speak out.

Don’t say a word.

April is Child Abuse Awareness Month

April 15, 2010 at 2:07 pm (Uncategorized)

The title says it all. Additional information can be found here: http://www.childwelfare.gov/preventing/preventionmonth/

ScarsByBullying is a group dedicated to stopping bullying, but I feel that it should also bring awareness to abuse of any kind and stop those, as well. Why focus on one thing when we can focus on many? This way, we stop as much violence as possible, all in one group.

ScarsByBullying is a group founded to bring more awareness to everyone about bullying, and to ultimately stop the horrible crimes humanity commits against one another.

This group was founded on March 29th, 2010 after two teenage girls read about a horrible suicide, caused by months of suffering from bullying. ( http://www.comcast.net/articles/news-general/20100329/US.School.Bullying/ ) The aim of this group is to spread awareness, stop the hurt, and stop suicides that could have easily been prevented.

If you are, or know anyone who is being bullied emotionally, physically, mentally, contact this group for support. We are here to help, and to let you know that you are not alone.
