I’m wearing orange. Ask me why.
Today is Unity Day. The day to wear orange. The day to unite together against bullying.
We have spent this last month observing National Bullying Prevention Month at Kendall-Whittier. We took part in Project Connect. We each wrote a message on our own link of a unity chain hung in our library unifying our stand against bullying and dtugs. Our class made an anti-bullying/NO drugs poster which is hung outside our door.
Today we wear orange. Orange provides a powerful, visually compelling expression of solidarity. One out of ecery five students repits being bullied. It’s important that these students know they are not alone, and they have the right to feel safe.
I’m a Cowboy. An OSU Cowboy. I’ve got plenty of orange. How about you?
If you care about safe and supportive schools and communities, help us promote kindness, inclusion, and acceptance in our schools, communities, and the world! Wear orange today. And each and every day help prevent bullying.
You shall not take vengeance nor bear any grudge against the sons of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself. Leviticus 19:18
Love and laughter,
