Mosaic Monday Bunday

Welcome back to another Mosaic Monday Bunday! This week's theme is in honor of Pink Shirt Day, an idea that started with two high school students from Nova Scotia, Canada. They organized a protest to take a stand against bullying in their school, in particular the bullying of one freshman who chose to wear a pink shirt. Here is the story from the site:
“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 [for wearing a pink shirt]…[They] took a stand against bullying when they protested against the harassment of a new Grade 9 student by distributing pink T-shirts to all the boys 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.

The bullies were never heard from again.”
I hope you'll choose to wear a pink shirt this Wednesday, February 27th, and raise awareness about the bullying that takes place in not just our schools, but at work, at home, and online too.

  3. The student's at my son's school (he's 11) were given a choice to wear red or pink shirts on Valentine's Day. He wanted to wear pink. I asked him, "You're not worried what the other kid's will say?". He said he didn't care what other people thought of him! The best answer a mother could hear!

    When he came that afternoon, i asked him what people thought of his shirt. He said he wasn't the only boy wearing pink, and people told him he looked awesome!
