Powerful Message about Bullying
There is no recipe attached to this post. Just a powerful message that Jennifer Livingston, from WKBT’s News 8 This Morning delivered on their morning news cast this morning.
I’ve known Jennifer for over 4 years now from my monthly TV segment that I am so fortunate to do with her and Bill on their show. Throughout these 4 years I can say that Jennifer has become my friend. She is the type of person I could easily go to lunch with and talk for hours about “stuff”. She is sweet, kind, smart, funny, and talented. She is beautiful on the inside and out.
I’ve been trying all day to find the right words to put down here that would explain what I’m feeling. As a person who struggles with my weight too, I know how hurtful those words can be.
My mind has a hard time figuring out people who use their spoken or written words to purposely hurt people. We are all guilty of it at some point in our life. I’m guilty of it as well and am not proud of it.
Jennifer, being the class act that she is, speaks the words that so many that are being bullied needed to hear. No matter what our size, our color, our disability, etc., we all have feelings.
If you haven’t seen it yet, please take 5 minutes to watch it. It’s a powerful message.
