Wow, it’s been a fun Summer so far and I sure hope that it’s been a fun summer for you, too. I want to tell you something that really bothers me. I see many of you with your cell phones and you’re having so much fun watching funny things on it, and you’re also texting back and forth to your friends and family and that’s great. But make sure that the things you’re texting or watching are good things and not bad or hurtful things. Remember, words hurt. Never let anyone make you feel bad about yourself because they are a bully! Bullies don’t think about the fact they are hurting people. They just think that they can hurt others and get away with it. Well, if someone who is supposed to be your friend begins to push you around or they text mean and unkind words to you, tell your mom and dad about it first and then make up your mind that the person isn’t really your friend. Be brave and let them know you are not afraid and that you will NOT let them treat you bad or say and text ugly things to you. You were made by God and God makes good everything. Bullying is for losers and you are not a loser. Just remember to be kind and have more fun this Summer, too. Talk to you later. JENNY
I have something that is on my mind and I want to tell you how I feel. But first, look at the picture here of people who are really special:
I consider the subject of those persons in our population who have special needs, very important.
Just because a person has a particular disability doesn’t mean that they can’t contribute something to society. It also doesn’t mean that it should be “open season” for them to be bullied, talked about negatively, or laughed at. If we see someone engaging in these types of negative behaviors toward a person with special needs, we should step up and do what we can to end the abuse because whether we believe it or not, the rest of us are just one car accident away from becoming handicapped, too.
We should put ourselves in the other person’s shoes and ask ourselves if we would want anyone to make fun of us or bully us.
God loves ALL of us and He made us all different. All our fingerprints are different, but God loves us ALL the same.
