Next week is Bullying Awareness Week and to prepare, all of the radio morning shows in the city took the Pledge Against Bullying a couple of weeks ago. The promos are now running on CTV here.
I was bullied, you may have been bullied, perhaps it’s still going on. It’s not just a schoolyard thing. It happens in workplaces all of the time. In fact, looking back, I wish I had had the stones to walk away and not endure it at various radio stations. But oh well, hindsight is 20/20 and all of that. Here is the promo that includes the pledge that was started in London and has spread to other parts of the country. We said it and we meant it.
“I believe that everybody has the right to live in a community where they feel safe, included, valued and accepted, regardless of differences. I pledge to be respectful of others and stand up against bullying whenever and wherever I see it.”
