My Students

"To go against the dominant thinking of your friends, of most of the people you see every day, is perhaps the most difficult act of heroism you can perform." - Theodore H. White. My students are heroes and they need your help to fight bullying. Being bullied, imagine what it's like, I'll wait...

My kids are in the members of my high school's Gay-Straight Alliance.

Now, imagine for a second what it would be like to be openly gay in high school. Imagine the courage it takes. I'll's not hard to imagine that you might get bullied. We all know a kids know many, and not just the gay kids either. Being a straight member of the GSA takes courage too. Perception is reality in high school. Join a GSA and you are under suspicion. My straight kids are the civil rights, freedom riders of their generation. My kids are smart, my kids are brave.... my kids are scared. And that's what makes them heroes, because my kids choose to stand, fight, and defend others even though they are scared and outnumbered. Imagine what that takes, I'll wait...

My Project

Now imagine yourself providing a shield against bullies for every kid in high school. I'll's hard to believe it could be possible, but buy us a button-making machine and the supplies to go with it and that's exactly what you will be doing. Arm my kids with the resources to place small round metal shields on themselves and others which will remind bullies that they're not being cool, they're being cruel; that reminds bullies that meanness = weakness; that reminds bullies that behind each and every button is someone's son, daughter, brother, sister, friend, a human being worthy of dignity and respect. Imagine the message that sends, I'll wait....

Now imagine yourself taking five minutes out of your life, to save one.

Imagine yourself going back in time and doing something to help the kid you watch being bullied when you were in high school. Imagine what your help could do, I'll imagine what it would be like for all kids to feel safe at school...I wonder if you can? I'll wait.... But my kids hope you don't. Help now. Thank you.
