It is time for my 2011 weekly Project Gratitude post. Information about Project Gratitude can be found at:
I am grateful there are still parents who instill kindness in their children. I hope and pray there will be even more who do this soon. I am especially grateful for the bystanders who stand up to bullies and tell them that yes, he or she is my friend. The more bystanders stand up to bullies, the less power bullies have. I am glad some people are getting this message. I am grateful to all of the people including parents, teachers, counselors, principals, and children who are working to make this the standard instead of the exception. I am posting links to some of the ones I found today.
The following post is an example of a total failure on the part of a school, the children who go there, and the parents of these children, but I am grateful that the girl is speaking out instead of taking her own life.
I wrote a blog about accountability back in October and finally some people are being held accountable for their actions just as I have said they should be.
One more good and bad together. This one is about adult bullies, and I am grateful this story is being reported, and the man who posted threats was arrested.
Let me know what you think about the recent developments.
