A Life of Judgement

The world is full of judgement. At every moment we feel as if the pressure of others around is weighing us down. Never allowed to do what we think is best in fear of being judged for it. At all times we are being watched scrutinized for what we say or do. It’s not only unfair it’s also just plain out mean. We shouldn't be judged according to our sexuality, gender, race, religion, or where we’ve come from. We shouldn't be judged at all. People have the right to make their own decisions about someone, but they don’t have the right to be mean or to share their thoughts about someone to others. We should keep our rude comments to ourselves.
Why do we consider ourselves the land of the free, when free will is the last thing on our minds. People aren't free to do as they please, or to be who they want to be because of the constant fear of judgement and hate in the back of our mind. Connor Franta said, “As selfish as it may sound, you have to make yourself happy before you can make other people happy.” That is true. We need to allow people to be able to make themselves happy and to reach their full potential, or else they won’t be able to live the life they need to live. We were graced with the privilege of life and everybody deserves to live it. So, why are we preventing others from doing so? #Stopthejudgement

What is Violence?

 Violence is a behavior intended to hurt someone physically, mentally, or socially. Violence can occur in many forms such as abuse, bullying, sexually, and crime. People may behave in such a way because they were taught that way, they were bullied, they've abused or have used drugs, or they were pressured to do so. The most common type of violence due to research done by the IRC is domestic violence. Violence DOES START AT HOME. The best way to prevent violence throughout our children and adults is to remember that the way you act at home is the way you act around people and in public.  

Red Ribbon Week!!!

Happy Red Ribbon Week! 
   Red Ribbon Week: do we all know the true meaning? Red Ribbon week is used to address the nation's issues with drugs, alcohol, and violence. It is to bring awareness not just to schools, but to everyone. Red Ribbon Week began with the murder of the DEA Agent Enrique "Kiki" Camarena in 1985. He was working undercover in Mexico and his discoveries led to very successful results. As revenge the leaders of the groups killed many of the informants and Enrique was one of them. In honor of his work his community wore red ribbons and slowly they became a symbol of drug prevention.
