The hope is to help our youngsters to become more loving toward their fellow man and more understanding that differences are not always negative

The day has come for kind and compassionate people to become the voice of change.  Allowing those that wish to bully and intimidate those unlike themselves to the point of victims committing suicide, or coming to harm, and mental or physical pain must stop.  Civic pride, and duty was once important in schools, fighting for the underdog was once admirable, when did this change to the point that young people are committing suicide. How horrific for families and friends of these victims. 

I recently joined the human rights comission in my hometown. It was during discussions at the meeting that I first became aware of the seriousness that the electronic age (cell phones and internet) and (real and cyber) bullying became apparent.  The internet has become a endless vehicle to distribute hate and intolerence.  I have also fortunately become aware also of the Southern Poverty Law Center and their work in teaching tolerance, improving awareness of intolerent groups and ideas, and giving schools and citizens the tools to combat negative behaviors.  Please check out the information they have to offer at  http://www.splcenter.org/get-informed/news/teaching-tolerance-distributes-free-classroom-posters-to-encourage-civic-engagemen

This website has also inspired schools to become more intent on teaching the history showing the consequences of hate groups, historical events that were based in intolerance and the like.  The hope is to help our youngsters to become more loving toward their fellow man and more understanding that differences are not always negative but often make the world a much richer and productive place.  This information can be found at http://www.facinghistory.org/

Enjoy this information and join me in helping this world to become more accepting of diferences, and embracing the need for uniqueness in the human equation.
