Words hurt more than you’ll ever know.

I’ve been pretty quiet on the topic of our loss of Amanda Todd. Mostly because things in the media are so polarized and everything about this story is complex, with interwoven issues that get lost in sensationalism.

But this is a beautiful song, inspired by a beautiful young spirit, whom we lost at too young of an age.

Words hurt more than you’ll ever know. Be kind, and when others are not kind, be brave and speak up.


Comment of the Day!

“With a strong moral compass, he frequently does the ‘right’ thing and encourages others to do the same.”

What a wonderful thing to say about someone! It tells me a whole lot more about the kid than any letter grade ever could.
