Mean Words

Beautiful commercial from the anti-bullying charity called Friends out of Sweden. I have seen so many looks/words/whatever thrown at Skyler that I am probably overly sensitive to it.

Give this a look, I hope it touches you:

  1. I hate bullying...not only is it rampant in the schools but the workplace too.....my nephew has been subjected to it for a few years...(unfortunately his mothr makes it worse)...his friends told a school counselor that they were worried my nephew was contemplating suicide because of the bullying...he is still here transferred to a different school...and is doing better

  2. It's more common than one would think... My wife was bullied out of a job 'cause she had an accent.

  5. You never stop wanting to protect your family from other people - those who may never understand - but on the bright side there are also those who eventually get to know your family and Skylar and are changed forever for the better.
