I may or may not be able to post much again this week. Every time I think I can, something comes up. In the meantime though, what I worked on last week was actually for another site. I’ll post it here later, but for now, make sure you bookmark or add Whatever Nation to your blog roll. *Especially* if you are the parent of teens. Topics addressed over there in prior weeks include cyber safety, raves, teen pregnancy, and birth control. This coming week the topic is bullying. The stories of the recent suicides made this topic a must. In my research on the topic I found a couple of eye opening and helpful sites:
Groundspark – for sobering stats.
The Trevor Project – for more stats and also for resources on how to help the most heavily impacted LGBT youth community.
I didn’t stop my reading challenge. I just took a detour into the political book realm so I wrote up books #38-40 on Pragmatic Progressive. Book #41 will be a Dean Koontz for a quick, Intense counterbalance of fiction.
Fall birding season is here so I’ll be watching/listening for our “cold” weather visitors & listing them on the Torrey Pines Reflections site.
Finally – a comic strip featuring me as the rat. Yeah, I own this!
Thank you for your comment at whatevernation today. I am following each post, too, and supporting the author. I hope that the other side of parents get involved: the bully’s parents. The thought today to pull the bully out is brilliant.
Why does the victim have to take the brunt of it all??? I do not understand that.
Lovely to meet you!
I am following these posts at Whatever Nation this week. These are such important messages. Thank you for the stats too, they are truly eye openers.
Great comic strip BTW. 🙂
