Do not let your self-worth be defined by bullies!
I felt compelled to write a followup to today’s post. It seems even as I was working on October is National Bullying Prevention Month, TV anchor/reporter, Jennifer Livingston of WKBT in La Crosse, Wisconsin, took on her own bully by responding on-air to a viewer’s e-mail criticizing her weight.
She ended her editorial with this inspiring message for our children:
To all of the children out there who feel lost, who are struggling with your weight, with the color of your skin, you sexual preference, your disability, even the acne on your face, listen to me right now. Do not let your self-worth be defined by bullies. Learn from my experience that the cruel words of one are nothing compared to the shouts of many.
Jennifer has decided to stand up and stop the bullying. Thank you Jennifer!
