This video, which features my good friend Tyler Curry, was done by a group of URI students to address the issue of bullying. It’s a subject that isn’t taken seriously, because people don’t see the long term effects of their comments. We must all learn to accept that we will encounter people who have different beliefs, sexual preferences and backgrounds. They should not have to feel isolated or alone, especially on a college campus where we all should be open minded and willing to see things through the eyes of others. I think we should treat all people with the utmost respect until they give you a reason to do otherwise. Even if their lifestyle choices go against your values give you no reason to be hateful or violent. Please watch the video and pass it along.
