October 9th has come and gone, and with it an organized opportunity to do something really special: Positive Post-it Day—all of it inspired by the courage and creativity of Caitlin Haacke, a Canadian teen that was bullied by a classmate. Rather than let the words of a bully bring her down Haacke paid kindness forward and in doing so started a movement, the aforementioned Positive Post-it Day, and we hope that it sticks around.
The official day may have passed, but all of October is Bullying Prevention Month and there is plenty of time for the rest of us to do something positive. In fact, don’t let the confines of the calendar box you in, spread your anti-bullying message any time you want. Some things we always need to hear.
