In bullying prevention, the homecoming queen reigns anew!
Dear Engaged Bystander: Where ever I travel, I look for stories. I hear them all of the time, but then one story really touches my heart. Maybe it is the pain that I am feeling with the number of suicides by gay teens. Maybe it is because my son was bullied in 6th grade. Maybe it is the hope that someone else will help us care for our kids and that one person can make a huge difference. What makes this story so mesmerizing to me is that the special someone who steps out of her comfort zone can be the popular girl in her senior year.
