In the wake of the Jonah Mowry phenomena over the weekend, and the video’s massive responses, in response to all of the other Jonah’s worldwide, many many people are stepping up their game and getting more closely involved in bringing about change. HOORAY!!!! Isn’t that what it’s all about?
Jonah is apparently doing well. Jade is, in fact, alive and doing well. However, during the time that the Jonah video has gone viral (roughly 72 hours ago), rest assured that we’ve lost several more teens, gay and straight alike, to suicide. And, realize that bullying was more than likely at the core of reasoning for most of them. Then, understand that at the core of bullying is ignorance, hatred, and intolerance. Once you’ve done that, it isn’t hard to figure out that raising anti-bullying awareness is absolutely crucial. Keep the momentum going forward. Reach out to someone in need.
