The hubs and I were lucky enough to get VIP passes from COCA (Council On Child Abuse) to see a special viewing of "Bully" tonight. This film is a must-see for anyone who has been a victim or knows someone who has been bullied.What I took away from this film was that silence and apathy can be deadly.When I was a teen, I was bullied for an entire year (7th grade). It made me sick to my stomach to go to school and no one seemed to think it was a big deal. Luckily, she moved on to another girl by 8th grade. She was insecure and hurting other's made her feel superior. Cyber bullies are now wreaking havock in the lives of teens everywhere. Bullies aren't limited to kids (as most bloggers know ;) - so let's stand up and try to teach all kids
that this is wrong... It hurts. Love and action seems to be the answer.

A special thanks to COCA for the passes!
We walked around Ludlow Avenue afterwards and gosh,
do I love the atmosphere here! Very Bohemian and serene.
This fashionista was happy to let me get a shot of her!
