Luckily, I am not alone in my views. And thus Stand4Kids was born.
I am proud to say that I have had an image used to create an ad for the campaign:
It is important that we teach our children how to make healthy choices in their lives, that we give them the tools that will allow them to build the kind of lives that they WANT to live. It is important that we do so without giving them the message that they are worth less if they don't meet a set of arbitrary societal standards.
Please check out the links I've given. Our children will shape the world, and we give them the tools to do so. Let's give them the tools that will help them succeed at whatever they choose to do, and that will allow them to do so with their self-worth, love for themselves, and love for the world around them intact.
