Two Wrongs Don’t Make a Right!

Written by Jenn Sadai I’m embarrassed to admit the horrific level of bullying that is happening in my own backyard. I’m from a relatively small city in Canada that only makes the national news when we do something awful. Our most recent shame was a viral video of teenagers verbally and physically abusing a nineteen year old woman with special needs. If you’re not aware of the video evidence of this particular bullying incident, it went viral due to the {Read More}

The Fight is Not Over

Written by Dana Jacoviello I know many are feeling lost, hurt, angry, scared, upset, and a plethora of other emotions. No matter what the outcome from this election, it does not mean we stop fighting. We just do it harder. We do it with even more passion than we already had to begin with. The change that came about in the past, we all did that working together as friends and allies. We made our voices heard, and we can {Read More}

We’re at War with Ourselves

From segregation and discrimination to racially targeted murders, from gender inequality to domestic violence, from religious activists to deadly terrorists, the battle grounds are spread worldwide. This is the reality of our world. Every country feels they need to protect themselves from every other nationality. We’re told at a young age, we must fight to preserve our way of life, our freedom.

Don’t Bully this Body!

Written by Jenn Sadai Discussions about rape, sexual assault and sexual harassment are finally getting some media attention! Talking about any type of sexual exploitation has traditionally been something people considered taboo. Women suffered in silence because they blamed themselves for the man’s behavior, which meant men got away with it, over and over again. In a twisted way, one politician’s disgusting and degrading comments have publicly started a necessary conversation. Although I wish I hadn’t heard the horrible things {Read More}

The Aftermath Of Being Bullied

If someone physically assaults you, there’s usually evidence of the attack. There’s a noticeable mark that will heal with time. Unfortunately, the physical consequences of bullying are minor compared to the emotional pain that’s left behind. Being bullied leaves deep, emotional scars whether any physical harm actually occurred. The taunts and insults stick with the victim and manifest into self-doubt or even self-hatred. What the bully may interpret as harmless teasing can have a serious impact on someone’s self-esteem. Most {Read More}

Violence Doesn’t Solve Anything

Written by Jenn Sadai There is a well-known Martin Luther King quote that begins, “Hate begets hate, violence begets violence.” It’s an old quote yet its value rings just as true today. In fact, there are countless quotes and clichés based on the principle that violence only causes more violence, yet it seems to be so many people’s first reaction whenever they are physically assaulted. Someone pushes you around, so you push back. One country attacks another, and war breaks {Read More}

Why Victims Stay Silent

Victims don’t choose to be abused or bullied. They are not trying to seek attention or cause trouble for someone else. They are not asking to be insulted, raped or beaten. So, why do we treat them that way? It’s heartbreaking to see victims of bullying, rape, and abuse doubted and demoralized on social media once they finally muster enough courage to speak out. It takes a lot of guts to confront a bully, especially if the person you’re accusing {Read More}

Bullied Just For Being You

Being bullied is mental and physical torture. No sane person would willingly volunteer to become a victim. Every day is filled with the anxiety of what might happen next. It’s hard to get out of bed when you’re anticipating you’ll be verbally or physically attacked later on. Mustering up the courage to leave your house seems impossible when you know there are threats waiting on the other side. Fear consumes your thoughts and affects every decision when you’re a victim {Read More}
