I heard a story of a girl who was being teased in class. The two bullies wouldn’t let up till she cried out for help. A young man who was late for class walked in during the heat of the conflict and shouted, “STOP IT!”  The two bullies went silent and the victim fell to the floor weeping. The boy sat next to her and told her he would stay with her till the social worker arrived. After walking her to the office the young hero went back into his class and asked the teacher if he could say a few words to his classmates. She agreed and he started reminding them how wrong it is to bully and how stupid they all are for teasing that young lady. He asked, “how would you like it if someone was teasing you like that?”

 Here is a perfect example of how students and teachers need to get involved. Bullying is wrong,  if we sit back watching someone being teased and fail to step in and say something then we are as bad as the bully.

Michigan Schools there is Grant Money for my Programs!

Since the program was reopened in January, the Michigan Humanities Council received 22 applications to fund $13,462 in support of Arts & Humanities Touring Program grants in communities across the state.

And, the Council is still accepting grant applications for programs between April 1 and September 30, 2010. The grants will be awarded as part of Michigan’s Arts and Humanities Touring Program, which consists of an online, juried directory of some of the state’s best cultural offerings including dance, music, storytellers, theatre, tradition bearers, exhibits, and visual artists. Grants of up to 40 percent of the cost of performances are awarded to schools, libraries, cultural centers, and nonprofit organizations to support presentations of those listed in the directory.
