New Bill SCR-100 passed in CA State Senate proclaiming 12/12/12 a Bullying Prevention Awareness Day in the state of CA. It was inspired and initiated by me, Gerry Orz. I am 10 years old and a founder of a non-profit organization Kids Resource. I would like to ask for your help in promoting my message all around the world. I have been bullied in school for so many reasons – too tall, gay parents, parent a foreigner, too honest , too polite, too Jewish…I refused to feel like a victim, but I had the support of my mothers and a brother and my voice was HEARD. Not everyone is so lucky.
There are so many people in this world that don’t have a voice – they're being bullied, abused and threatened every day of their life. Can you imagine how it feels to be afraid to speak … to make a move… to breathe…to question yourself every day if you are worthy of living? Horrible! Devastating! Unspeakable!
We are being told that kids in elementary and middle schools are too young to be taken seriously - let's join our forces to proof that we, the future generation, have a voice that needs to be heard. Our silence will be louder than any scream in the world!
I am asking all of you (kids,adults, educators, TV and Radio Stations) to join me on 12/12/12 at 12pm PST for 12 seconds of silence for Global Bullying Prevention Day for all of those that can’t speak for themselves, to understand how it feels to be in their shoes for just one day! If we all try – that would be the last day on the planet where people are mistreating their own kind!
Help me protect our future generations!
