Pink Shirt Day started on February 26. Have you raised your voice? I don't know about you, but I was semi bullied by my next door neighbor when I was 7-12 years old. Luckily, she didn't torment me as maliciously as some kids do nowadays, but she was definitely intimidating because she would walk behind me, with her friend, and make all kinds of remarks.
Picture this. In real life, I'm super short, and I've worn glasses since I was five year old. I was like a walking cliche of the perfect kid to pick on. Luckily, and it's a strange lucky, my family didn't have a home computer until I was in high school. Because now social media allows teens to target and bully from afar, and with that convenience comes double the impact to cause harm.
