Make A Difference Monday: The Trevor Project
When you're a kid, you don't know that bullies are ignorant.
You don't know that a bully sees someone who is amazing, different and free and feels like they need to build a cage of hurtful words and actions around you so that you are trapped, diminished, and small.
You don't know that they deserve no power over you, that they are weak and you are marvelous and strong.
You only know that they are hurting you. And the longer the bullying goes on, the more painful and frightening daily existence becomes. The more isolated and despairing you become -- unless, that is, you have somewhere to turn.
I support the Trevor project. It saves lives.
Maybe you want to support it too.
