While the internet and social media has been an amazing and wonderful invention, that has empowered us by enabling us to do so many fabulous and astonishing things – like gathering information in a nano-second, giving those with no voices a voice, making the far seem not so distant, sadly, some have chosen to use it as a weapon.
It’s horrifying to see how some people choose to use social media as a tool to make others feel terrible about themselves. Just because you have a keyboard at your disposal, it doesn’t mean you can shoot out horrible, offensive comments to people that you might or might not know. This is not on! It’s time to take a stand against bullying!
Someone who has taken a stand, is TV News Anchor, Jennifer Livingston. Jennifer received an email from a viewer about her weight and decided to respond to the viewer on live television. Her eloquent and impassioned response about bullying is inspiring. This is worth 4 minutes of your time.
It’s time we all took a stand. To throw the viewer’s email subject title back at him – we all have a community responsibility to do so! It’s time we put a stop to bullying!
Thank you Jennifer Livingston!
