This is my hope for all of our CT students: when it's time to step up and do the right thing, will you??
How are your problem-solving skills these days??
Most of us are not the bully or the victim. Most of us are bystanders. Even if you can't stop the hurtful words, cruel posts or insensitive actions, you can still be a friend to someone who needs it. Stand with them...so they are not standing alone. The smallest action or a kind word could make the biggest difference...you may not even know how big.
Love is Louder was started by The Jed Foundation, MTV and Brittany Snow to support anyone feeling mistreated, misunderstood or alone. It’s hundreds of thousands of people just like you who have turned this idea into a movement. A movement of all types of people who have come together to raise the volume around the message that love and support are louder than any internal or external voice that brings us down.
Individuals, communities, schools and organizations have embraced Love is Louder as a way to address with issues like bullying, negative self-image, discrimination, loneliness and depression. Even as we work to stop negative words and actions that hurt us, we can strengthen our abilities to cope with hard times, focus on the positive, support the people around us and reach out for help if we need it.
How can you be part of the Love is Louder movement? Connect with it. Take actions to support yourself and others. Express all your feelings — from the challenges and the hurt to the possibilities and the hope. And never forget that the opportunities for support, help and love, are always louder and more powerful than the pain.
With your help, we are getting even louder.
You never know how much you can impact someone else's life. You also might just impact your own at the same time.
