Stand Up To Bullying Day – October 26th and every day!

The last Friday of every month has been designated  International STAND UP TO BULLYING DAY! October 26th is it for this month. Please join this vital cause.

There’s been a lot of talk about the subject of bullying lately and there are many special days, weeks, and months dedicated to spotlighting the problem all around the world. The truth of the matter is that every single day needs to be dedicated to this. Let’s make it happen.

The tragic suicide of Canadian Amanda Todd fuelled my post last week.

Friend and fellow author, Steena Holmes, has a superb post this week with a particular emphasis on cyber-bullying, the scourge of the internet. Please click here and support her cause. Join the BookSparksPR in the Speak Out campaign. Remember these are things we can do every single day!

Once again, here’s the link to my post on bullying from last year with many important links to keep us informed and involved. Take a minute or two and help spread the word. It’s the least we can do … and let’s continue think about the MOST we can do. Take action!

I’m going to keep posting from time to time about bullying and hope that somehow in some small way the messages will help make a difference.  I leave you with Rick Mercer’s rant from last year. Obviously more kids need to hear it.

SHOUT IT OUT! Don’t worry about leaving a comment here, spread the message elsewhere instead.

Patricia Sands lives in Toronto, Canada when she isn't somewhere else, particularly the south of France. With a happily blended family of seven adult children and, at last count, six grandchildren, life is full and time is short. Beginning with her first Kodak Brownie camera at the age of six, she has told stories all of her life through photography. Much to her surprise a few years ago, she began to write and has now published three novels, including two that are part of a six-book series set in the south of France. Love France? Love her work! Check out her website www.patriciasandsauthor.com She is particularly drawn to the rewarding friendships of women and the challenges many embrace once their families are grown. "It's never too late to begin something new," she enthuses. "As the saying goes, just do it!"

It's always good to hear to from you!
