be a bully - even you. Kids usually become bullies
because they are unhappy inside for some reason or
don't know how to get along with other kids.

Why a Pink T-Shirt?
I wish I could take credit for this idea but it comes from
two incredible Nova Scotia high school students in 2007.
Here is a snippet of a Globe & Mail article
about their efforts:
“David Shepherd, Travis Price and their
teenage friends organized a high-school protest to wear
pink in sympathy with a Grade 9 boy who was being bullied…[They]
took a stand against bullying when they protested against
the harassment of a new grade 9 student by distributing
pink T-shirts in their school.
‘I learned that two people can come up
with an idea, run with it, and it can do wonders,’ says
Mr. Price, 17, who organized the pink protest. ‘Finally,
someone stood up for a weaker kid.’
So Mr. Shepherd and some other headed off
to a discount store and bought 50 pink tank tops. They sent
out message to schoolmates that night, and the next morning
they hauled the shirts to school in a plastic bag. As they
stood in the foyer handing out the shirts, the bullied boy
walked in. His face spoke volumes. ‘It looked like a huge
weight was lifted off his shoulders,’ Mr. Price recalled.
