    Matthew Tapia was born 3 months pre-mature, a mere 1.5 pounds. Doctors gave him a 5% chance of survival, and if he was able to defy the odds he would barely be able to speak or even walk. A film about the power of never giving up.

Unity Day was a great orange success

On Wed., Oct 22nd, the world came together to unite against bullying!

Here are a few Unity Day highlights:

  • At Ramstein Intermediate School, the lunchroom served orange colored food and a military unit provided 900 orange cookies for students. Even their jaguar mascot, Spots, dressed in orange.
  • Heritage High School in California had their 2nd annual Unity Flash Mob.
  • More than 550 students from Washington Elementary School in Washington celebrated by joining hands around their school and reciting their bully pledge.
  • AD Johnston High School in Michigan created an art piece to be displayed in their school. Each student, staff and board member decorated a popsicle stick and all the sticks were put into one piece of art to show that we are all individuals and together we create a larger beautiful piece of art.

Other celebrations across the country included a mix-it up lunch, pep rallies, paper chains of unity, and morning announcements. Unity Day celebrations also went international in Argentina, Mexico, Taiwan, United Kingdom and Canada. Thanks again to everyone who came together this year to show one giant message of support, hope and unity. When we stand together, no one stands alone!

  • I was bullied at my old school. It was really tough. I didn't have many friends, and I wasn't popular. I hope some day all bullys with understand what it feels like to be bullied. Then, maybe, they would stop.

  • My son and Daughter were involved in a bullying situation at school last week. My kids are fine and the school handled it very well and I'm happy that the school has handled it in the way that they have. My daughter was grabbed and pushed to the ground while sticking up for another little girl and my son, while standing up for his sister and the other girl was grabbed from behind and his front tooth (luckily a baby tooth) was punched out after he tried to walk away from the confrontation. I'm so very proud of both of my children for standing up for the other girl and for each other, I'm also proud of my son for trying to walk away instead of using his Karate to fight. They both handled it very well and I'm a proud mother for it. Proudest moment of it all, was the night it all happen, my son said a prayer for the bully boy during dinner to help the boy and make him stop bullying people and to help him not be an angry boy anymore. (I almost cried, I was so proud).

A girl who can’t be herself
Anonymous

I have a family of 8 siblings and I am one of the middle child and I am the only one with ADHD and other health problems and everybody would tell me to be myself and I would be okay I will and when I would be myself I would be bullied because of my ADHD and other health problems. I have a group of friends who if they saw someone bullying me they would get in between me and the other person and tell them to go away but then I moved and its been hard for me to find friends like that where I am now. I have been thinking of cutting for a very long time since I was 7 actuality and I listening to DEMI LOVATO songs on the internet because that is the only way that I can listen to her songs and listening to her songs I relate to every single one of them listening to the songs makes me feel like I should stay and helps me to be myself and not to be so depressed. Listening to DEMI’S songs makes me stronger and makes me want to tell someone about some of my health problems that nobody knows about but I can’t tell anybody when I try to tell someone nothing comes out of my mouth. The reason I am still here is because of DEMI LOVATO and my pets if it wasn’t for them I probably wouldn’t be here today.
