ellen's message about bullying

Today I wore orange on my show for a very special reason. Pacer.org has organized an incredible movement to put an end to bullying. It's called Unity Day. Today we send a message to anyone being bullied that they're not alone. Because the truth is no one who's being bullied is alone. Just about everyone has been bullied at some point, and nobody likes it. Let's stop hurting one another and try to appreciate the things that make us different.

Today, I stand united with anyone who supports students who are being bullied. You can show the world that you're standing with me today by wearing orange. That's why I wore orange on my show. That, and it brings out the bronze tones in my complexion.

I hope you'll stand up to bullying with me. If you want more information about Unity Day, please visit www.pacer.org/bullying.

It is a serious problem in Canada also, this should not be tolerated at all, things need to change, parents need to teach their children that society, parents, schools and employers will not tolerate this at all. To be an individual is a right, to be free from the threat of harm, or harassment is another. Parents need to talk to their children and be part of their lives, listen to them, be there for them. If you see or hear of a child bulling another, let the parents, school, know about it do not just ignore it with it is not your problem, it is everyones problem and needs to stop, these children are our future, without them we have no future. Lets forget the borders and help all children in crisis, even if it is not your child....."love thy neighbour" she says this is a crisis, it is more than that, sorry Ellen I am not belittling your statement but it is a crime, a shame, an epidemic and a problem we are all responsible to change....teach your children being different is a good thing and those opposed are a small minority, lets work together as the human race and make changes, the life of one child ending is one to many.....this is what we both think and support..........these lives are precious and more valuable then any item or resource out there.....J&J.......... I was not always a nice guy, if I could change, so can YOU.

ellen i think that bullying is a defninate issue but what really defines bullying threatining people,hurting them, maybe making fun of them!So are you saying you yourself are gonna never take a poke at someone on your show or in society ever again,(remember you are a comedian and talk show host,and what goes alng with those jobs!)not to mention what i have seen go on on your show for myself!I left a comment on mrs.livingstons topic also about not believing her situation to really be a bullying problem, that gentleman did not say anything vulgar,threatining,nor did he repetatively keep sending her messages! He left a message on her message board at a news station that was asking for viewers comments, and he said what he felt(moral values are different from person to person so wether wrong or right they must be left up to the observing person to make a decision for themselves on that subject,it does not automaticaly make it so,just because she says so!). She is a reporter and surely must understand ones right to freedom of speech,that is what her whole job is about, immagine if we were told exactily every single word we were aloud to say ,no more no less no matter what or how you felt about it!And you can not tell me in all the time she has been doing the news she has never once voiced her own oppinion or took a bias side to a report(please!!!)This is a women who did not like the critisism she recieved!She was not threatened,or beat up o even made fun of,she recived a critigue of someones personal views(which truely i didn't see the nessesity for him to write it,but there again that is my personal oppinion!), but is it wrong and bullying,i think not!!)like i said before it will be a cold day in hell before i give up my freedom of speech(which allows me to express my personal oppinions,wether they are right or wrong in somebody elses eyes!
