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

Im sorry for saying this but your Dads the adult. He knows what hes doing. Hopefully he will get through this phase fast.  Talk to him if you can and tell him how its upsetting you. But its not that serious unless he smokes for the long period of time and then theres the chance of getting cancer.

When I was little my dad used to smoke but he quit. Then a few months ago I found  a lighter in my dad coat. He said my uncle has asked my dad to carry it and had forgot to get it back i believed him. But  i have seen him smoke and I don't know what to do. If I tell my mum they might get a divorce because she wouldn't put up with it. I'm so mad at him I'm not going to speak to him. What do I do ? Should I tell my mum ? Should  I tell my sister ?
