Amanda Todd was a young girl who was bullied throughout middle school and high school.  She was continuously harassed and embarrassed which led to anxiety attacks, depression, and isolation.  Here she is telling her story on white cards with her words written in black marker.  She did eventually commit suicide.  

Bullying comes in many forms such as teasing, physical harm, peer pressure, tagging them to hurtful comments or pictures on social media sites; it’s not just shoving on the playground.  And, the effects from bullying leave more than a physical scar.  Think about how bullying affects an individual and how it feels to be bullied.  Treat others the way you would want to be treated.  Think of ways you could help to prevent teen bullying and by doing that, you could save a life.

There is a Facebook page to support Amanda Todd and all those who have lost their lives to bullying. Visit http://www.facebook.com/pages/RIP-Amanda-Todd/206084786190406?fref=ts

TWP tackles Childhood Obesity

1 out of 4 youth are overweight or obese! #obesity via @actoutva: http://bit.ly/QuZt6H

Don’t listen to anyone who tells you that you can’t do this or that. That’s nonsense. Make up your mind, you’ll never use crutches or a stick, then have a go at everything. Go to school, join in all the games you can. Go anywhere you want to. But never, never let them persuade you that things are too difficult or impossible.
- Douglas Bader

A lie, as small as it may seem, never fails to hurt someone in the end. So don’t risk to break an innocent heart, to scar a lonely soul, or to stress a meaningful relationship. Just be true, always.
