My blog this week hopefully demonstrates what can happen when many people put their voices together. Everyone matters and can make a difference. I’m not sure if you have all heard of a new movie coming out called Bully. It is tackling the problem that still runs rampant throughout our schools today, bullying, and how we can help bring a stop to it. Currently, the MPAA has given Bully an R rating making it so many students, who need to see this, cannot see it as well as not being able to play it in schools nationwide. There is a petition on change.org right now that has over 400,000 signatures and they are hoping to get up to 500,000 signatures to help persuade the MPAA to change the rating to PG-13. You do have to enter some information but I just did my last initial for my name and did not put my whole address in. The fields do have to have something in them for your signature to go through. So when you are on your computer sometime this week think about helping to change the fact that over 13 million kids will be bullied this year and help make it possible for everyone to see the movie. Happy signing!
Until next week,
