Support Katie Leclerc @katieleclerc in her Bullying Prevention Campaign #lovebomb #yay

Katie Leclerc has been a long time advocate on the prevention of bullying. She sent out a tweet today that I felt needed to be shared. It reads as follows in bold:

“I know YOU can make a difference! Support bullying prevention. Design a custom t-shirt or buy mine at http://www.customink.com/stopbullying #lovebomb #yay”

There are many types, levels, and venues of bullying. Looking up the definitions and many variations is lengthy. But to sum it up it is being cruel to another. The various reasons someone would be a bully is just as numerous but the outcome is the same. No one wins; the recipient or the instigator. The levels of pain to the recipient are too numerous to list and though the instigator for whatever reason may think they are winning but in reality they are labeled by others as a bully and no one respects them. It is a loose/loose situation.

I see this on a daily basis and it is more wide spread than most people realize. My hat goes off to Katie Leclerc for taking up this mantle to prevent bullying.

Recent posts have included a discussion on how government cutbacks might affect language policy, reflections on how techniques for glossary management have changed over the years, an entertaining rant about poor lighting conditions in booths
