July 31 – Taking a break to enjoy the sunshine!!

Unfortunately, I have run out of a bit of steam and am taking a breather.  So in pondering some of life’s best things, my blog will be on holidays for a bit.  Unless there is something that I really need to write about.

In the meantime, here are three links to check out …

About Carol Todd

Being the mother of Amanda Todd has lead me on this journey shortly after Amanda's death on October 10, 2012. Amanda's prolific You Tube video has been viewed over 33 million times. Through this video, there has been an increased awareness about cyberbullying, social media safety and mental health. www.amandatoddlegacy.org

    I shared Amanda’s story with my teen male clients today. They have been having trouble bullying each other. They watched the video Amanda posted without movement and their eyes glued to her story. I began sharing of how her death has affected so many people and asked how they would feel if their words caused such immense pain. They all looked at me puzzled as if it never occurred to them how their words are widespread. They have each been speaking with me about this pain they felt for her and how they do not want to inflict pain on others. So begins their journey of learning to be nice to others. Thank you for being such an amazing person and continuing to share her story. I believe it makes such a difference. Thank you a million.

    no, it’s just a ‘T.h.i.n.k.’ sign thing as in thinking before u go around saying things. But it was on Grav3yardgirl’s instagram and she is an interesting person & all about being herself.

    Velvet, I can’t seem to see the picture, would it be Amanda’s bench?

    To Carol, soo glad you’re taking time for yourself.
    The Sun will warm you up, and the nice breeze will make you
    comfortable and relaxed.

    Good for you Carol. Take a break, take as long as you need. It was painful for me to watch Amanda’s video I can only imagine how difficult it must be for you. This cannot happen agsin. We need to yell and scream we need to do something about putting laws in place. There is no other solution xo ❤
