Pink Shirt Day 2011: Bullying Stops Here!

Feb 22, 2011

Pink Shirt Day is all about stopping bullying, which is a major problem in schools, homes and even over the Internet. On February 23 wear something pink to take a stand against bullying everywhere … and read this story to find out more about Pink Shirt Day!

Taking a Stand in Nova Scotia

In Nova Scotia, Canada, David Shepherd, Travis Price and their friends organized a high-school protest to wear pink to support a Grade 9 kid at their school who was being bullied. Even though pink isn’t the most popular color for guys, David and Travis convinced all the boys at their school to wear pink tank tops and show their support.

When the boy who was being bullied came to school the next morning and saw all the guys wearing their pink tank tops in order to support him, it took a huge weight off his shoulders. Not only that, the pink shirt idea worked – the bullies were never heard from again

Your style is simply whatever you want to wear! Just wear whatever feels comfortable, or whatever you think looks good, and it is your style (: It doesn't matter if it's not entirely individual and unique, as long as it's what you feel happy wearing.

I love both my parents equally, but I prefer to spend time with my dad. My father works abroad so I see him a lot less than my mother, but it means that when I see him it feels more special :3

To be honest, this is probably just something you have to bear. I know that sometimes relatives can be irritating, but they only visit often because they care about you and want to see you (: Unless there is a real reason you don't want them to visit - for example, if they are unkind to you - then you should just endure it.  Or you could mention it to your parents and see if they can sort it out? This is something lots of kids have to deal with, me included, and it's just part of life! You are lucky to have grandparents who care about you so much c:
