Authors Against Bullying

Hi there,

Today’s post is a quick redirect to a “blog hop” styled collection of authors who are standing up and standing out against bullying. Started as an idea on twitter, Mandy Roth and Yasmine Galenorn got the ball rolling, and today there is a whole list of authors participating in #AuthorsAgainstBullying.

(taken from Mandy M Roth’s blogpost…)

The story of the Canadian teen who committed suicide because of bullying—but not before she told her story via a YouTube video— has hit me hard. What makes the matter even worse are the comments on the video by trolls. The comments and the fact a young girl was driven to suicide (and she is not the only one) because of bullies have all come together into something simmering so close to the surface that I felt more needed to be done. People being bullied need to see others pulling together and standing united against the behavior and they need to know they are not alone. Yasmine Galenorn, a fellow author and friend, felt the same way. Together we decided to gather our writing friends and peers and invite them to take a stand against bullying. They responded and together we are Authors Against Bullying.

You can read the rest of her post… including her own story about bullies… by clicking on the graphic above. I’ve copied the list of participating authors below. Each links to their post about how bullying has affected them or their loved ones. Each is a personal story, some never told before, and each carries the message of awareness. It’s up to all of us to look out for each other and NOT let bullying continue.

*Each authors’ opinions on bullying are their own and do not necessarily reflect the views of all participating.

    Useful information. Lucky me I discovered your web site unintentionally, and I am surprised why this twist of
    fate did not took place in advance! I bookmarked it.

    The web has truly changed the way we communicate and made
    it far easier to stay informed about the lives of our loved ones.
    Then consider yourself one of the few, true internet marketers.

    Make certain that the payment gateway you are making use of,
    permits similar languages as the remaining of the web pages so
    that they can match well together.
