How come we all want surround sound when we watch movies to get the real effects but it just isn’t the same when you are trying to relax with some piece and your other child is blaring the speakers. And it’s 3 levels below your bedroom. Arggg….. oh well. Better home that out doing crazy things.
I think I mentioned I was going to the iStand Youth Summit today (yesterday if your read this tomorrow). It was a great event. Nice to see all the kids there. The twitter link is https://twitter.com/i/connect . On Facebook it is https://twitter.com/i/connect. There were about 100 youth attending. I met a few that had known Amanda and had gone to school with her. Yes, I shed a tear or two. One workshop that I attended was a young lady who told her story about depression, anxiety, suicide attempts and bullying. It was hauntingly similar to Amanda’s story. The good thing is that while on her last attempt, this girl was writing a letter to her parents to say good-bye but halfway through, decided it wasn’t the right choice. So help came in time. I am so happy for her and her parents.
Did anyone see the National Conference of Girls & Bullying in Las Vegas at the end of June? I am so interested in going.
Another thing, if you want some reading to do, go read some of the comments in the Reflections tab. So cool to other points of view from the other end of Canada. It’s so nice to see that thoughts can be changed and differences can be made.
Thank you to all those who have helped to make changes happen even if you had never met Amanda. xoxo
